Must-read! RIP Nelson Mandela, by Sabotabby [Dec. 6th, 2013|12:40 am]

[Tags|, ]

The death of Nelson Mandela was the death of a courageous man and a complicated man. Killer and peace-maker, he was no pacifist, but a revelutionary locked in a death-match with an evil system that — until they abandoned it like so much rats from a foundering scow — was backed by just about every so-called freedom-loving country in the Western World ...

The brilliant Sabotabby writes about Mandela's legacy, and why we owe it not so much to his memory, but to ourselves, not to forget the truth about his struggles. It's a must-read: http://sabotabby.livejournal.com/1162324.html.
