Had the pleasure of playing the resilience game with the MTSC peeps at Roland Kupers class on complexity today. It was a terrific, terrifying, and deeply rich window into human nature. This piece on “Day Zero” makes me draw connections to what we faced at class. In particular, how simple it is to talk about collaboration and co-operation, and how damned hard it can be to shift that for real - in our case, we required varying combinations of insight, timing, commitment to values, and the right crisis to catalyse a need to overthrow the status quo. - From the moment Day Zero became a political problem, it deepened the rifts between the parties. Under South Africa’s Constitution, the ANC is responsible for providing water to all citizens, but the actual infrastructure and services in the Western Cape falls upon the DA to manage. This arrangement would seem to necessitate cooperation, but in reality that hasn’t been the case. The two sides have bitterly smeared one another, blaming the collapse of a number of schemes to boost water supply on the intransigence or ineptitude of opponents. In one case, DA leaders criticized the ANC-led national government for reportedly rejecting assistance from Israel, which employs advanced conservation techniques in its water infrastructure. The South African government is officially aligned in support of Palestine, and has now engaged in a boycott of Israel for decades.
