Ons is nie alleen nie!

Kom vandag hierop af – dis nou na aanleiding van die Britse “travelgate” skandaal – die menslike hebsug, korrupsie en gierigheid het nog nie verander nie. Ons sien diedelfde grypsug onder sjimpansees en bobbejane.


Oliver Cromwell, Rump Parliament, 20 April 1653

It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place,
which you have dishonoured by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled
by your practice of every vice. Ye are a factious crew, and enemies to
all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would
like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas
betray your God for a few pieces of money.

Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice
you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is
your God; which of you have not barter’d your conscience for bribes? is
there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the
Commonwealth? Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil’d this sacred
place, and turn’d the Lord’s temple into a den of thieves, by your
immoral principles and wicked practices?

Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed
here by the people to get grievances redress’d, are yourselves become
the greatest grievance. Your country therefore calls upon me to cleanse
this Augean stable, by putting a final period to your iniquitous
proceedings in this House; and which by God’s help, and the strength he
has given me, I am now come to do. I command ye therefore, upon the
peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place; go, get
you out!

Make haste! Ye venal slaves be gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors. In the name of God, go!
