I’m no fan of the our local rag the Cape Times, but even though it misses the mark on most everything, even a broken clock is right twice a day (unless it’s a digital clock, in which case, probably not).
The Cape Times is not a digital clock though, and it was probably right with its headline for Freedom Day yesterday.
I didn’t read the article. I didn’t need to.
I’m not claiming that any other government anywhere else is necessarily any better, but I would argue that any other government anywhere else never had the hope and positivity that came before the 1994 elections here. The opportunity for a proper fresh start.
That’s all long gone now, of course.
