Noah’s Ark in the 21st Century

When you’re concerned about the safety of your family and friends as well as the declining economy, the unstable labour market and a one-party state in the making as most of us in South Africa are, we think of emigration as a solution.

So, where do we go?

Most of us would probably consider Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the UK. But what if you don’t have the qualifications and skills they require for immigration purposes?

I’m one of those. We’ve been trying to get jobs in Australia for a while now. Some employers just throw out applications from overseas, others say: “Well, if you were here, you’d get the job.”

So a lot of us are stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Of course there are other options. Georgia, for example has attracted a lot of white South Africans, especially farmers. But with trigger-happy Putin just across the border, is Georgia really a viable option?

I’ve looked into South America when I read an article about Comodoro Rivadavia, where my grandmother was born. Her father fled there after the Boer War because he refused to bow down to the British Crown. There are still a few Afrikaans-speaking people there who have never been to South Africa.

Most of us know that there isn't much of future in South Africa for whites.

Global Crisis:

We're a bit pre-occupied here with our immediate surroundings, but what's it like in the West? Europe is a melting pot, a ticking time bomb. The USA is in trouble. The house of cards will eventually come tumbling down. Our Capitalist system and the exponential rise in population globally just can't be sustained. So, emigration to the West could just be jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire.

You may have seen those programs on Satellite about the Americans preparing for war and building bunkers and thought that they're a bunch of nutters. Well, they may be, but all the evidence is there that our civilization will crumble and that it's not really a matter of IF, but WHEN.

Finca Bayano:

I stumbled across a project that is in the making in Panama and as you may see, they've kindly agreed to sponsor my blog for a while. Almost half of the hits on my blog come from the USA and I'm sure that a lot of you realize that it's only a matter of time before racial tensions, uncontrolled  immigration and economic mismanagement take their toll on the States.

For white South Africans this may also be a good choice if you're looking for the tranquility of country-life without the constant threat of torture, murder, rape and confiscation of farm land in South Africa.

"Finca Bayano is located about 200 (322km) miles west of Panama-City, at an altitude of about 1,600 feet (488m) above sea level. The area is sparsely populated and malaria-free. The size of the Finca is 75 acres (30 hectares), and according to our plans, about one hundred people are going to live in the village. The climate is ideal with an average temperature of 75°F (25°C). The soil is fertile and there is adequate rainfall. Firewood is available in abundance, and there is mostly a fresh breeze. A creek divides Finca Bayano into two equal halves. There is no industrial pollution and there are no power plants in this region. Also, there are no active volcanoes and no major earthquakes."

"Finca Bayano consists of Farm-Lands and Building-Plots. According to Panamanian law, the minimum size of a 'Building Plot' is 1,000 square meters, which is equal to roughly 11,000 square feet. One square foot costs 2,70$. Thus, the smallest 'Building Plot' costs roughly 30,000$. Bigger 'Building Plots' are also available. A 'Farm land' has the minimum size of 5,000 square meters, which is equal to roughly 55,000 square feet. One square foot costs 0.55$. Thus, the smallest ‘Farm Land’ costs roughly 30,000$."
