SSN ‘FOR A PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC’


Yesterday (11 May 2012), I wrote, ‘SSN (Swaziland Solidarity Network) supporters want the monarchy abolished and replaced by a Communist-led state.’ It is true that many supporters do want this, as they are themselves members of a communist party.

However, Dominic Tweedie, moderator of the SSN Forum Google Group, is keen to point out that SSN itself does not advocate for a communist-led state. He tells the forum in a post that SSN wants the monarchy replaced by a people’s republic.

The twentieth century experiment with communism has proved this outcome to be a solid waste of humanity.

Exchanging a monarchy for a communist state is like trading one aids for ebola.

Obviously, a republic would limit direct participation from the masses who peacefully accept the rule of King M--and could vote him in directly as prime minister.
