Divided Party (DiP)

Divided Party DiP logo

Divided Party was registered during 2019. The certificate of incorporation, issued by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) in South Africa, incorporated the legal person. Work is ongoing to enter local, provincial and national elections.

Demand for DiP

When 780 signatures were gathered from complete strangers in Vanderbijlpark, Vereeniging, Meyerton, Parys and Sasolburg; South Africans from most backgrounds signed the Deed of Foundation. Twelve strangers to one another, signed the Constitution of DiP. Of the 12 signatories who signed the constitution, 5 were black, 1 Indian and 6 white. Willing self-determination, is one objective, in different forms, all have in common. Everyone willing it, however, does not promote others' self-determination. Promoting own and others' self-determination, is necessary for peaceful unity, as opposed to despotic "Unity". Divided Party is a post-1994 South African party, in touch with the complicated reality, with solutions to solve the problems of current times.

DiP's objective is to unite the left and right in one party, whilst arranging self-determination for all in multicultural (left) and unicultural (right) cantons.

The current self-determination parties on the right, namely Freedon Front Plus and Inkatha Freedom Front, cannot draw enough votes, to trump the imperialism of the majority parties on the left. Imperialism is represented by the African National Congress, Democratic Alliance and Economic Freedom Front. That does not mean, imperialism is a phenomenon only of the left. In Spain for example, imperialism is a phenomenon on the right, because the majority parties on the right do not allow self-determination, for Catalonia on the left. Left politics are identified with policies promoting multiculturalism in one territory. Right politics promote uniculturalism in one territory. Imperialism can be right or left. In Spain the situation is the opposite of the situation in South Africa, because, in Spain the imperialist majority is on the right (uniculturalism) and in South Africa the imperialist majority is on the left (multiculturalism). Imperialism thus is regarded as politics, divided into parties representing either the left or the right, or the middle.

Whichever party wins in imperialist politics, forces their policies down on all others, if they have large enough majorities. If they do not have large enough majorities, coalitions are formed, which implies infighting and misleading governance. DiP changes that, with its reasoning against imperialism, whether it is imperialism on the left or the right. In South Africa the problem currently, is imperialism on the left, because the majority parties are fixated on the idea of controlling all of South Africa only for multiculturalism. DiP promotes self-determination for multiculturalism and uniculturalism, against imperialism.

DiP can draw more than 50% of the votes for self-determination, because anyone from any group from any folk of the South Africa nation can vote for DiP. To comprehend better how this can be done, please read on.

Funding of DiP

Tax deductible DiP brand tokens can be purchased. If the automatic DiP cryptocurrency counters can be used, please buy DiP tokens.

Membership of DiP

DiP does not have members who pay membership fees, because voting is a private matter. DiP works for the self-determination of all South Africans. Self-determination of individuals each can be influenced negatively by a membership list, due to imperialist victimisation. Not having a membership list, means DiP does not have annuity income. The exchange of DiP tokens for fiat money and Ether (ETH) must fund DiP.

Political Theory

Most people have a will to self-determination in common, but most people have been indoctrinated with the idea of "Unity", which relates to "Self" and despotism, hindering others' self-determination.

Political orientation can be plotted on a Matrix of Politics. DiP represents "all", for their self-determination. The reality is, each language, represents different groups, therefore, on the way to self-determination of individuals each, sub groups of each language should first attain self-determination. Self-determination of each individual implies all people, must respect universal laws, otherwise others' self-determination is not respected.

Y - Axis: Unity (-3) to Self-Determination (+3)

Reasons to vote for DiP

A primary decision of voters, is, choosing between multiculturalism in one "United" state, or, self-determination of each group. It is two mutually exclusive conditions due to cultural dynamics. Multiculturalist culture, has rights to self-determination in multicultural regions. Multiculturalists, however, do not have the right to claim all the territory in South Africa for their control. There need thus be a balance between democratic rule and self-determination of powerless groups. Being "United" with a capital "U" is a fallacy, because despotic Leviathan governments are "the sovereign" of "United" territories. That is partly why democracy came into being. Imperialism and being "United" are similar. The phenomenon is present at socialist and capitalist thinking. True "democracy" will respect self-determination of individuals each. DiP is the only party, drawing votes from all South African groups, for self-determination of groups each, practically, and individuals each, idealistically. Any person believing in self-determination for all, can vote for DiP. Choosing multiculturalism in South Africa, implies rejecting own language development, in favour of English. A Multiculturalist House will be formed during the 2020 Annual General Meeting of DiP.

Striving for fallacious "Unity", caused the 2nd World War. Germany was too diverse to be one "United" state. Multiculturalism, is currently causing much friction in the USA and Europe, like before the 2nd World War, because democracy gives majority culture all the territory. South Africans have been indoctrinated with the "Union", which is a culture, since after the Anglo-Boer War. The same that happened before 1994 is busy happening again. The ruling dominant group cannot consider the other groups sufficiently, because cultures are too different. It is unavoidable that cultural convictions will be forced down on minorities. The reality is, in most places in the world, governance can be divided into unicultural and multicultural groups. Before colonisation, Africa was divided into language groups, like most of Europe is currently. Switzerland seems to come closest to how DiP promotes self-determination. The territorial units there are becoming smaller. The last secession happened recently, without war. Switzerland is currently divided into 26 cantons. Some are German, some are French, one is Italian and some are multicultural (French, German, Italian and Romansh). Uncolonised places tend to structure themselves into unicultural and multicultural groups. It often however, happens with wars. A modern phenomenon, for example, in the European Union, is, "citizens" own property among other language speakers.

DiP promotes self-determination for all, unless it infringes on the rights of others' self-determination. The universal idea Love, the root of social contract theory; not-doing evil to all others like selves do not want evil done to, is relevant, when self-determination of all is considered.

DiP can draw votes for the idea self-determination from all groups of South-Africa, including the multicultural group, because of a unique constitution, which supports all groups, with different policies, convictions and beliefs. It is not necessary for all leaders of DiP to agree. The only policy to agree about is self-determination for all groups, which implies mutual respect.

The objective to divide, according to acceptable criteria, for self-determination of all groups, is simple and clearly distinct from fallacious "Unity", which includes all territory. It will depend on negotiations in the future, instead of possible war. DiP turns the clock back to before 1994 for a renegotiated dispensation, retrospectively taking new information and new realisations into consideration.

Each group will determine their own economic, legal, education and other policies, therefore the decision to vote for DiP, during 2021, does not depend on those things. A vote will be primarily for the idea self-determination. More detail will be published in the future. Currently, it seems, the only South Africans who will not have a House in DiP, are the ones who convict in "Unity" of all territory, as opposed to self-determination.

Priorities

* Votes: Anyone wanting to contest upcoming by-elections on behalf of DiP should contact DiP.

* Funding: Divided Party is not funded by big business or wealthy individuals, like most parties, therefore every little donation helps. A funding model is used whereby tax deductible tokens can be bought and traded, on Ipparts Exchange (IPPAEX), a new cryptocurrency exchange, in development.

Executive Body (EB) of DiP

The EB consists of 12 individuals, who signed the constitution. They are not a group, representing a specific part of society. "Not a group" means they were randomly met and spoke to on the streets, of the Vaal Triangle, to sign the constitution. Marquard Dirk Pienaar wrote the constitution on his own and has done all the work to date alone. His role as Head of DiP will be to keep the peace with conflict resolution and helping leaders of the Houses with good ideas. He was outlawed/ostracized therefore has no alliance with any group in South Africa. The position he is in socially, actually benefits DiP. The other 11 members of the Executive Body currently show no interest in the management of DiP. Their membership was caused by the Electoral Court in Bloemfontein, which judged in a court case between the Electoral Commission and Pienaar, on behalf of DiP, before it was registered, that DiP may not be registered with Pienaar, the only Executive.

Leadership of DiP

As written above, the EB members of DiP are not active leadership of DiP, except Pienaar. The way the leadership must develop, is, influential representatives of all the different groups of all the folks of the South Africa nation, must come forward and lead different Houses, representing different groups, in DiP. It will be beneficial if these leaders can be people with much influence, who can draw many votes and do fundraising well, from all the different groups. Leadership has two parts, which are rarely found in the same person. Having good ideas is a result of honesty. Pienaar has good ideas. Often however, honest people are not very influential and social, therefore influential leaders are necessary to communicate good ideas, to others. There will thus be two types of leaders in DiP. Honest leaders, will probably be active in the background with well-known leaders communicating policy to voters. Preferably, all the Houses must have both types of leaders.

Policy of DiP

General Policy

Self-determination is a democratic internationally accepted right, which opposes imperialist democracy, based on left and right politics. The attainment of the right in a peaceful way will be more likely if different groups work together in one party to oppose imperialism, the major enemy of self-determination. Acceptable dividing criteria exist, and if the criteria are respected, people from different backgrounds can divide themselves in a peaceful united way and attain self-determination. Previously, division and consequential self-determination came into being via wars, which are unacceptable. Logically that is why the right to self-determination must be attained with democratic majorities. Switzerland is an example for the world, with regard to this, because recently, secession there caused the 26th canton, without war. Switzerland made the choice against imperialism 100s of years ago, whilst dividing the Swiss nation into unicultural and multicultural cantons.

Different groups will be represented by DiP, each with their own policies. Land policy, because it is the most topical, can be used to explain the policy. The policy of DiP implies, South Africa must first divide into regions with self-determination before any Expropriation Without Compensation (EWC) happens. It is however unlikely, unless the ruling party changes its policy. The only shared policy, among the leaders to be, of DiP, is, governance of land must be divided. How the division will take place, and where borders will be, are matters for negotiations. The division of land does not mean people will have to move, if they do not want to. In Europe, for example, people can live anywhere, whilst governance of land is divided into unicultural and multicultural regions. In Switzerland, for example, each canton decides self, which official language(s) to use. Before colonisation and before the 1910 "Union" of South Africa, language regions existed. Since the materialist false "Union", South Africa had trouble among language groups, basically because in a "Union" only one group controls all others, and a group cannot consider other groups' self-determination sufficiently, because of different cultural preferences.

A proposal in DiP, is to attach, language and belief preferences, to land. Areas each can have only one first language and English as second language, whilst the laws of the region mirror the beliefs/convictions of the group, governing the region. Other areas can have many official languages in multicultural groups. Some or all metropoles will probably be multicultural regions.

Governance will become more decentralized. Culture and philosophy/religion have an important influence on the law and education, therefore each area will have an own legal and education system.

Different Houses will form in DiP. Probably, each House will represent a region, but how the Houses will develop, is not predetermined.

A leader of DiP may promote any policy, but the policy must align with the constitution of DiP, to divide peacefully.

The following proposed steps to determine division can be discussed.
1) Different groups based on language and/or belief/conviction/morals, interested to determine their futures and record their history self, are identified.
2) A referendum divides the population into folks/groups.
3) The votes are regionalised according to addresses.
4) Negotiations take place.
5) Borders for decentralized governance are drawn.
6) Assuming 3 groups among each language folk, and multiculturalist groups exist, gives reason for around 40 cantons. The multicultural groups will be situated in different metropolitan regions, because multiculturalists are usually city-folk.

Language, cultural and multicultural areas already exist in South Africa. The following language map of South Africa, produced by Stats SA from 2011 census data, was sourced from Wikipedia.

Language map South Africa

Another useful map is the district municipal map of South Africa at Wikipedia.

Moving is not a prerequisite for dividing a country. Division can happen only with regard to governance, without requiring movement. Most local governments are currently dysfunctional, partly because of different cultures and languages represented in local governments each. Much infighting will be stopped if each region is governed by only one language, cultural or multicultural group. If people want to move, it can happen as time goes on, after establishing different governance regions. Changes in the short term, in most areas, will probably not be much. In the long term, adjustments in line with reality, will happen gradually. DiP therefore promotes constant gradual changes, and rejects revolutionary change.

Foreign Policy

A foreign policy of DiP, proposed for South Africans is, South Africa should have no foreign enemies and no foreign allies, because the South Africa nation, divided into different folks, divided into different groups, cannot afford to be divided more by foreigners. That could imply pulling out of BRICS and the United Kingdom Common Wealth, causing contradiction on national level, dividing the nation. These types of decisions however cannot be thought about properly without being really involved.

South Africa is a big enough territory to be independent from foreigners, if good governance is present.

Domestic Policy

One of the most important tasks will be forming a force, whose sole task will be protecting each individual against "the-group" in one canton. Domestic policy is simply to give each canton/group/folk the most possible self-determination within national and international context, against imperialist control of the nation.

Economic Policy

DiP promotes economic independence as far as possible, for each canton. If a canton's leadership and people thus, e.g. prefer to reject technology and mining, in favour of human labour, only on the surface of Earth, so be it. The main difference between DiP's national economic policy and current political parties' national economic policy, is, current major parties are controlled by an international monetary force. The result is, capital is not created in South Africa currently. Capital is primarily borrowed from abroad and invested into South Africa by foreigners. The result is, to survive, current political parties, basically, sell South Africa to foreigners.

Capital forms, basically, in two ways. Socialists, who include the "religious", have conviction in the Labour Theory of Capital only. It is the ruling paradigm. Intequity (capital of ideas) is only comprehended by few people who apply it in esoteric evil ways, only for the benefit of a few extremely rich people in an international monetary system. DiP will change that for all South Africans. It is a controversial statement to make and previously, countries with the same idea, for example Zimbabwe and Germany, before the 2nd World War, did not succeed. It will thus have to happen very carefully, preferably, whilst cooperating with the international community.

Constitution of DiP

The constitution of DiP explains its primary purpose.

Any party or political movement, agreeing to the following two policies, can join DiP.

Leaders of DiP have to agree to:

1) Self-determination for all.
2) No war.

Houses of DiP

The following Houses were formed: KhoiSan House, House of Intequinism, Christian Afrikaans House, English House, Zulu House, Xhosa House, Sotho House, Tsonga House, Tswana House and Venda House.
