The ZACP (Capitalist Party of South Africa) has 10 principles by which the party is governed, and it includes teaching teenagers (free of charge) how to use guns and equality - individual rights over group rights.
The Capitalist Party of South Africa (ZACP) is barely a month old and already making waves for the policies it supports.
The ZACP was founded on 17 March 2019, by Kanthan Pillay, who believes the current members of Parliament are "unemployable oxygen thieves".
The party is registered and reading for the election; they are very visible on social media and are getting people to talk about them.
The people behind the 'purple cow' has been described as innovative and disruptive, as reported on by News24.
Pillay did an interview with News24 and explained that his party wants high school children to receive free gun training.
The purple cow represents the party's ideology - purple is, according to Pillay, the colour of prosperity and the cow reflects South Africa's traditional belief that cattle show wealth.
Pillay also said that the party would reduce the salaries of Parliament employees by 34%.
By and large, these parliamentarians are unemployable. They're not qualified and get paid so much and the exceptions are Zweli Mkhize who is a medical doctor, Pravin Gordhan who is a pharmacist, Tito Mboweni who did well in the private sector and a few others.
They are unemployable oxygen thieves. What job can Julius [Malema] get that will pay a million a year? Mmusi [Maimane] can at least be a preacher.
Briefly.co.za gathered the 10 principles of the ZACP:
- Equality — Individual rights before group rights
- Tolerance and absolute protection of freedom of expression
- Private property rights protected by law
- Rule of law
- Right to work
- The right to be secure on your own property and to defend yourself against intruders
- Free markets and international free trade based on enlightened self-interest
- Firearms for self-defence
- Fraternity — Spontaneous order and Civil Society
The future of the ZACP is unsure, but for now, it is making people sit up and take notice of the things they say.
