Primitive beliefs and stereotypes that justify attacks and hatred against other humans are still wreaking havoc within our modern society. Witchcraft belief is one such primitive malice responsible for the brutal killing of innocent people, mostly our indigenous black grandmothers in some parts of South Africa.
However, witchcraft belief is not alone in this archaic madness. Indeed, this madness seems to be contagious and vice versa, with many anti-racists, for example, being xenophobic towards their fellow brethren. The same applies with anti- sexism folk being homophobic and anti- tribalism people being sexist. These stark contradictions show that humanity still has a long way to go to achieve full rationalism. For this reason, enlightened education is indispensable in order to cure this stone- age malice.

Mfundo Badela was born and bred in the rural district of Herschel, Eastern Cape, South Africa. he is left-learning Altheist and staunch believer in Evolution. He believes that reason and science hold the future for humanity and is of the view that indigenous knowledge (as apposed to myth) should be revived to supplements career education and that education must be intellect based, so that Africa creates knowledge instead of merely consuming it. This will also server to completely rid Africa of its endless dependence on both the West and East, as it would herald the total liberation of Africa.
