    re: RIP Nelson Mandela [W:28, W:56]

    One of the greatest historical figures of the last 100 years. He was by no means perfect, none of us are, but the fight he fought was absolutely necessary. No country on this earth should be allowed to treat any of its citizens as second class, political non-entities. One man, one vote. RIP, Madiba.

    They decided that they didn't want Apartheid, but it's unfortunate that they didn't think ahead about who would take the place of those in charge. They discovered too late that there was no one left who knew how to do anything, which of course led to more oppression and chaos. Dreams of grandeur of being the "boss" turned out to be short-sighted on their part.

    I'm very sorry to learn this sad news. He was one of the great historical figures of the 20th century. In helping bringing an end to Apartheid, his contributions to South Africa's people were immeasurable as all succeeding generations are beneficiaries of his efforts. May he rest in peace.

    I'm just gonna c/p my FB status on the man:

    Nelson Mandela was a freedom fighter, not just for black South Africans, but for South Africa as a whole. He and the countless others who worked with him helped to save the soul of a nation and replace with equality where there once had been discrimination, helped to replace with love where there once had been hate. He is an inspiration to people not just in South Africa, but to those who fight for justice and freedom today and who will continue the fight tomorrow. While he may be gone, he still lives on in the hearts of those who wish for a peaceful and just world, where we can learn to live together, even with our differences, but still respect and understand one another.

    Rest In Peace Mandela, you have earned it.

    Mandela was commander in chief of the ANC, a violent terrorist organization. How in God's name can he be compared to Gandhi? The PR campaign for him is better than Che's and soon people will be wearing Mandela T shirts too.

    I'm assuming this is a day when some conservatives discover his Marxism, regardless of his actual political decisions.
