|Why Talks with ZANU-PF Have Failed to Resolve the Zimbabwe Crisis|
Vladimir Lenin declared: “To tell the truth is a petty bourgeois habit, but to lie and lie convincingly is a sign of superior intelligence!” Lenin also said: “Treaties are like pie crusts – made to be broken!”
Dealing with Deceivers
It is an unquestionable historical fact that Marxists are deceivers and tyrants. How can one make agreements with people for whom lying is an art form and treaties are “worthless pieces of paper!” to again quote Lenin.
Zimbabweans should be well aware of what happened with the Unity talks between Joshua Nkomo’s Zimbabwe Africa Peoples Union (ZAPU) and Mugabe’s Zimbabwe African National Union (ZANU-PF) in the 1980’s. Although Joshua Nkomo prided himself on being “the father of Zimbabwean independence” and was Mugabe’s senior, the power sharing agreement between Nkomo’s ZAPU and Mugabe’s ZANU ended with the extinction of ZAPU and the consolidation of power for ZANU.
Arguing with Atheists
Vladimir Lenin explained: “Atheism is the natural and inseparable part of communism.”
Marxist ideology offers no God, no soul, no free choice, no eternal life, no hope. Rejecting, as they do, objective reality in God, and objective standards of right and wrong, as expressed in the Ten Commandments, denying the reality of eternal Judgement, there is nothing that compels Marxists to adhere to the truth. They will promise anything and everything necessary in order to obtain the advantage necessary and then, without blinking an eye, violate their own end of the bargain.
Lenin taught: “We must hate. Hatred is the basis of communism.”
“Hatred is an element of the struggle, a relentless hatred of the enemy…transforming him into an effective, violent and selective, cold-blooded killing machine. A people without hatred cannot vanquish a brutal enemy” declared Fidel Castro’s hit man, Che Guevara
Karl Marx wrote: “With disdain I will throw my gauntlet full in the face of the world and see the collapse of this pygmy giant…then I will wander god-like and victorious through the ruins of the world. And giving my words an active force, I will feel equal to the Creator.”
One of the slogans of the Soviet Revolution was: “Let us drive out the capitalists from the earth and God from Heaven!”
Marxist Commisars explained: “We do not just fight against believers, and clergyman. We fight against God to snatch believers from Him.”
Deception and Depravity
“They promise them freedom while they themselves are slaves of depravity.” 2 Peter 2:19
The Scriptures warn us: “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with the Balial? And what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the Temple of God with idols?…’Therefore, come out from among them and be separate’, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you.”
The electorate in Zimbabwe have overwhelmingly rejected the dictatorship of Robert Mugabe and the Marxist ZANU-PF regime.
A Trail of Destruction
Mugabe’s mismanagement have led to the highest inflation rate in the world – now calculated at 230 million%; the highest unemployment in the world – over 90%; and the lowest life expectancy in the world – under 30 years.
State Orchestrated Terrorism
Mugabe’s farm invasions and destruction of the once productive white farms have led to widespread famine - with half the population of Zimbabwe fleeing the country, and the other half being dependant on international aid.
Not only has the agricultural economy collapsed, and the once vibrant tourist industry disappeared, but even the state university has had to close down, and schools have cancelled the last term of the year. With pervasive power failure, neither the hospitals nor plumbing are working. The entire country is in a meltdown.
How can anybody question the fact that Robert Mugabe’s ZANU-PF regime has spectacularly failed on every level? The people of Zimbabwe have had enough. They have rejected Mugabe and ZANU. What is there to negotiate except the handover of power to the legitimately elected Movement for Democratic Change?
“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, not sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the Law of the Lord, and in His Law he meditates day and night.” Psalm 1:1-2
