As the nation lurches from set piece to set piece in the melodrama that is the road to Mangaung, we may wonder: how did we get here? And you may ask yourself, is this the place where I live?
If your reply is that it is a land gone down the rabbit hole, you may be right, but for the rest of us, it seems reasonable to want to understand the origins and character of our predicaments: what has gone wrong with the South African project? If ours is a democracy, why did we bother? Have we fallen through the centre of the earth and come out among the people that walk with their heads downwards?
- The Devil in the Detail: How the Arms Deal Changed Everything by Paul Holden and Hennie van Vuuren
