Divided Party (DiP)
A Political Party, uniting Left and Right, for Self-Determination of all, against imperialism.
DiP is busy changing its name to include the words Federal Party, because the meaning of the word divided is not interpreted the way it was intended. The new logo will look something like this:
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
South Africa has 11 official languages in one multicultural "territory". Some languages/cultures are wronged because of "the Unity", which is not reality.
"A Multi culture society is best served in a federal dispensation where culturally distinct regions govern themselves to the highest possible degree. This prevents the dominant culture overpowering smaller cultural groups." (@Jimboymil on Twitter) Within the constraints set by the SA Constitution, decentralised regional governance "to the highest possible degree" is the policy.
In the name "Divided Party", the word "divided" gives balance, because "party", already implies unity. The "Unity", imperialists want, is only possible within self. Therefore the name Divided Party is true. It is better to build on actualities for unity, than claiming "Unity" exists, which does not exist. The Left and Right will be divided, the foreseeable future, but can be a united party. Thinking about the word "divided" can be subjective or objective. Subjective thinking is usually negative imperialism, and part of the problems of South Africa. Objective thinking about divisions is usually positive, as it relates to self-determination for all and formation. Objective thinking refers to other than self. For example, generally, if self is one of two with a peach, thinking objectively about a divided peach is good, because each gets a piece. Self-determination for all is impossible without division, according to acceptable criteria, e.g. language/culture. Division is logic. Division causes peace. Segregation according to colour, is against international law and illogical, because it is unacceptable; generalising and discriminating against individuals each. Apartheid included a bad idea (segregation), which originated long before apartheid. The mistake of apartheid was segregation, not self-determination.
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. Every-one 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. It is basically the current proposal, but the short constitution allows other proposals.
The current self-determination parties on the right, namely Freedom Front Plus and Inkatha Freedom Front, each represents one minority group and cannot draw enough votes, to trump the imperialism of the majority parties on the left. DiP can draw more than 50% of the votes, because DiP represents all groups for self-determination. Groups, not represented in DiP, could be imperialist, because if they had the majority vote, they would have been on the left or the right and probably would not have respected the other "side's" self-determination, as it usually happens in imperialist democracies. Imperialism is represented on the left 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 to 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, right or middle. 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.
Corruption is out of control and current majority parties will not fix it, because honesty is not part of the parties' cultures. A Deputy Chief Justice of South Africa, for example, wrote falsely in a Judicial Service Commission investigation conclusion report, he refused to sign, his view about a heterosexual man's "beliefs and homosexuality". The Public Protector refused to investigate the Judge's actions. It happened, partly due to different cultural "convictions" and beliefs, regarding honesty. It was one of the most important reasons DiP was founded, because different cultural views about honesty, cause different levels of corruption. Corruption is currently destroying 100s of years' work in South Africa, and sometimes people cannot work honestly, because the legal system does not protect isolated honest individuals, who are always weak, against groups. Truth with its relation to honesty, is a very important idea of Intequinism, the foundation of DiP. Deceiving groups control South Africa with criminal activities. The big difference among cultures with regard to the interaction between "the-individual" and "the-group", is one of the most indicative problems necessitating more than one cultural system/region in South Africa, because it influences creativity, development and sustainability.
DiP can draw more than 50% of the votes for self-determination of all, because anyone from any group of any folk, as well as multiculturalists, of the South Africa nation, can vote for DiP. To comprehend better how this can be done, please read on.

Refer to the Fundraising Page for more options, e.g. fiat deposits into DiP's bank account. DiP needs fundraisers. Refer to the Jobs Page.
Membership of DiP
DiP does not have members who pay recurring membership fees, because voting is a private matter. Ordinary members buy DiP tokens. The names of ordinary members are not registered. Not having a membership list, means DiP does not have annuity income. The exchange of DiP tokens for fiat money and cryptocurrencies must partly fund DiP.
Executive membership should be purchased, to also fund DiP. Executive membership gives the right to make proposals and attend and vote on Annual General Meetings. Executive Members are also members of Houses in DiP. Executive Membership can be inherited according to the constitution of DiP "similar" to the House of Lords membership in the United Kingdom. More information is available further down at "Executive Body (EB) of DiP", "Houses of DiP" and in the constitution of DiP.
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.
Politics changed from Imperialism into Democratic Imperialism, which will change to Democratic Self-Determination. Democratic Imperialism is identified primarily with majorities of the left, the middle and the right and coalitions. According to politics about Democratic Self-Determination the primary choice is between imperialism and self-determination. The primary choice is not between left and right. All political parties can thus be divided between imperialist and self-determination parties. Imperialist parties place too much importance on centralised governance and self, without considering others. DiP promotes balance between centralised and decentralised governance, prioritising self-determination of all, with decentralised governance.
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 only multiculturalism in one "United" South Africa, 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, should 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 communist, socialist and capitalist thinking. True "democracy" will respect self-determination of groups 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. Uniculturalism in other languages than English does not accept such degradation of own culture, therefore the system should change to allow uniculturalism in other languages than English.
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 imperialist democracy gives majority culture all the territory. South Africans have been indoctrinated with the "Union", which is multicultural, since after the Anglo-Boer War. The same that happened before 1994 is busy happening again. Because of imperialist selfish reasons, it was not and is not comprehended; it is impossible for a central government, without sufficient decentralisation, to consider all cultures for self-determination. The ruling dominant group cannot consider other groups sufficiently, because cultures are too different. It is unavoidable that cultural convictions will be forced down on minorities. Before colonisation, Africa was divided into language groups, like most of Europe is currently.
Switzerland has policies closest to how DiP promotes self-determination currently. 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 after 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 and criminal law; 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 constitution, supporting 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, in the right balance with central governance, 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. The only South Africans who will not have a House in DiP, are the ones who convict in imperialist "Unity" of all territory, as opposed to self-determination.
* Votes: Anyone wanting to contest upcoming by-elections or 2021 local elections, on behalf of DiP, should contact DiP.
* Funding: If funding is not forthcoming soon, Divided Party, may close down. 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 individuals, who have seats on the Executive Body. The seats can be purchased, sold and inherited. An amount to buy a new seat is not fixed. The amounts will change according to circumstances. The EB are not a group, representing a specific part of society. A group would have lapsed again into imperialist fallaciousness, like groups usually do. The EB divide themselves into different Houses, but on the Annual General Meeting they vote as Party, each seat representing one vote. If a House does not exist where an executive member is comfortable, new Houses can be formed.
The EB must arrange self-determination for all wanting it, "locally", with the knowledge and trust, self-determination of others, is respected nationally and internationally. Self-determination starts locally if a national or international justice system does not uphold self-determination rights of individuals each, as is happening currently.
Leadership of DiP
DiP promotes the leadership of provinces by "monarchs", who respect self-determination for all groups, according to section 143 of the SA Constitution. Separate Constitutions for each province will say more about that.
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 fill and form different Houses, representing different groups, in DiP. It will be beneficial if these leaders can be people with much influence, and people with good ideas, who can draw many votes, and do fundraising well, from all the different groups. New EB members must also help fund DiP, whilst buying seats on the EB. Leadership has two parts, which are rarely found in the same person. Having good ideas is a result of honesty. Often however, honest people are not very influential and social. Influential leaders communicate good ideas, to others, and do networking. 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.
Current Proposed Policy of DiP
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. A letter was submitted to Parliament to object against the planned Expropriation Without Compensation (EWC). The policy of DiP implies, South Africa must first divide into multicultural (left) and unicultural (right) regions, with self-determination, before further land reform takes place. If EWC takes place it must be combined with a resettlement program, whilst considering the likely distribution of different cultures in future. In principle EWC should not take place, partly because, if EWC takes place, it will be breaking the agreement, negotiated for the 1994 transition. It is however unlikely, unless the ruling party changes its policy, because all of South Africa is regarded as multicultural territory currently and imperialist selfishness is the order of the day. 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.
Proposal for discussion to solve the land problem
Step 1: Governance is decentralized to regions where multicultural (left) and unicultural (right) groups have self-determination.
Step 2: All the land in each region is valued.
Step 3: The value of all the land is borrowed to the decentralized governments by the SARB at 0% interest.
Step 4: The decentralized governments offer to buy all the land.
Step 5: The owners of the land decide to accept the offers or not. If they accept, they stay on and manage the land if the decentralized governors want that.
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. Writing of opinions, by representatives of all the groups, in books and blogs on the DiP and Africahead websites will enhance the DiP communities.
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 probably be situated in different metropolitan regions, because multiculturalists are usually city-folk.
Language Map of South Africa
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.
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.
South Africa should have only one Defence Force. It should use defensive, not offensive ways.
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.
South Africa should be part of a well functioning international group of countries applying universal laws about not-doing evil to all others like selves do not want evil done to. The "categorical imperative" is also referred to as criminal law and/or social contract theory and/or universal Love.
One of the most important tasks will be forming a force, whose sole task will be protecting each individual against ostracism/excommunication/outlawing, in one canton, at least. 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.
DiP promotes economic independence as far as possible, for each canton. 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, from two human sources; ideas and labour. Most people have conviction in the The Labour Theory of Value. When the majority favors state control of ideas it is called socialism and communism of leftist politics. When the majority favors religious control of ideas it is called capitalism of rightist politics. Intequity (capital of ideas) is a new word, which caused Intequinism, the foundation of DiP.
Constitution of DiP
The constitution of DiP explains its primary objectives. Details were intentionally omitted to allow flexibility, to attain the objectives, whilst respecting self-determination of all. The objectives must be attained with negotiations among different groups, wanting self-determination. This webpage contains proposals, which can be opposed within Divided Party, whilst the constitution is respected.
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 promotion of 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.
A Multicultural House, House of Independents, and Muslim House will be formed on the next Annual General Meeting.
Other Houses will be formed to include as many groups as possible, for self-determination of all.
DiP did not take part in the 2019 general elections, but needs local candidates in all municipalities for the local elections of 2021 and by-elections before 2021. Refer to the Jobs page.
A Manifesto for the Local Elections of 2021 and By-Elections
*Divide Municipal Funds!*
Much money has been stolen from municipalities. It was possible because of the centralized control of funds. If the funds of each municipality are divided into different bank accounts, it won't be possible to steal from a central bank account. Each ward can have their own bank account with ward councillors' signatures and another signature required, before payments are made for wards.
Intequinism, the foundation of DiP, and the source of the current proposal, does not prioritize achieving teleological ends, despotically, like imperialism. An objective to achieve, is relevant though. The objective however, will adjust to circumstances. Nationally, the objective is self-determination for all unicultural and multicultural groups in different regions (cantons), if they want it. If the policy is universalized, it means self-determination regions will become smaller, but central governance areas could become larger. For example, because many Zimbabweans already live and work in South Africa, South Africa and Zimbabwe, could become one national territory, with many self-determination regions. In such a new nation, the central government will be much smaller though, than any of the current central governments in South Africa or Zimbabwe, because most governance will be decentralized. The same idea can be extrapolated internationally. The main function of a central government, is seeing that the idea Love; not-doing evil to all, like selves do not want to be done to, is enforced. That is basically criminal justice, applied on universally acceptable terms. The International Criminal Court, already has such a function. Criminal justice, must however operate in conjunction with measures, preventing circumstances, which cause criminality.
Promoting self-determination for all groups, wanting it, is a new political movement, because previously promoting self-determination, happened only for "Self", often in a violent way. Like stated above, it is foreseen, Democratic Imperialism (DI) will transition to Democratic Self-Determation (DSD), like monarchism transitioned to DI. Therefore a website was formed at Github, where different new DSD groups and parties, forming internationally, can cooperate, to achieve the goal of DSD for all, willing it. Real self-determination can only be achieved if self-determination is promoted for all groups worldwide otherwise it is imperialism, which has shown itself as fallacious and selfish. The "king archetype" and "president archetype" are not positions to aspire to.
DiP can be discussed at Google Groups, Twitter and Disqus.
