    Good day Gentlemen and thank you for this great forum.

    I am from South Africa. I have a background in psychology, my main interests are geopolitics and history. If I was an American I would be considered an average conservative, here in South Africa that means I am a far right extremest

    I hope to learn a great deal on here and perhaps contribute where I can.

    A very interesting introduction and perspective coming from a Springbok.

    Thank you for the warm welcome, Lady and gentlemen

    I have just finished reading the rules, seems sensible enough.

    On other sites I have found that when a South African talks about what might happen in SA that people respond by blaming that individual for somehow wanting it to happen, like civil war. Surely what one foresees is not automatically what one wants. In this case it is the exact opposite of what I want. Thankfully it seems that this forum utilizes critical reasoning more than most.
