What do you think should be done to stop the looting?

Interesting read from Anthony Turton (former military intelligence and analyst)

/snip

The firestorm of violence that engulfed us yesterday was no surprise. We have seen all the warning signs, and were even sent clear unambiguous messages of what was to hit us on Monday morning. Few took heed, and many even dispelled these messages as being the usual drivel from the EFF.

So the EFF.

Had I come across some quote or meme and posted it here, would it be misinformation and fear mongering ? Lefties still believe things will not come to pass ?

A fully communist country would have a minimal state, so the above is unlikely.
heh? A fully communist country means the state is the largest it can possibly be and no private property exists whatsoever. The only guns would be in the hands of the authorities.

Socialism, like capitalism, is a broad and pretty general term. Neither has any definitive manifesto written by an individual who invented the concept. Both go back thousands of years.
No, actually modern socialism was born of the same minds that caused the french revolution.... it did not exist before that.

Which would make it no different to the rest of what humanity does.
It's a political system not a business. Democracy does not perpetually keep being built, it either exists or it does not... there is no in between, there is no progression.

Karl Marx said “Under no pretext should arms and ammunition be surrendered; any attempt to disarm the workers must be frustrated, by force if necessary.”

Also explains why so many pretend communists might be opposed to the people owning guns. The people might decide to attempt to overthrow the government and implement communism. That's the last thing a pretend communist would want.
That quote is in practice only applied as is at the beginning of a revolution.... after that "the workers" becomes interpreted as "the party".

I understand what it means, but people still don’t want calm until Ramaphosa steps down.
I didn't ask if you understand what it means. I can also Google a definition of something then offer an ignorant opinion on something I never experienced in real life.

Every vehicle used for looting all the windows should be smashed this ensures they are identified as a looting vehicle's.

Water cannons & tear gas were used on peaceful protests, where were those items this time?
Need a lot more than the few thousand troops deployed.

Live ammunition for everyone works and seems to stop the problem in its footsteps. I think it would stop alot of crime in SA going forward.

Deploy the army. All of them. Bring out the big guns. water cannons, hurty spinny guns, napalm and any nukes that might be lying about. Time to get serious. If this is not dealt with swiftly and decisively the general public will see the ANC and weak and directionless which is how they have handled this an any case. and looting like this will seem to be a norm because people can get away with it. Bheki Cele has proved he is weak and not a leader in any capacity. He should be fired and go teach pre school as per his qualifications. Ramaphosa needs to grow some balls and try the instigators for treason and incitement. That includes the Zuma's spawn.

Zuma's money, family trust money and any money the spawn have needs to be confiscated as well as Nkandla and all the assets this vile Zuma family own as well as the money/assets any other instigators have, and that must be used to assist families and businesses affected by all this "free the fat toad Zuma" fukkery.
