    Saying Mandela wasn't a communist is like saying that Mussolini was never a communist.

    There are few people on this planet who I would consider to be close to enlightenment, but I consider Mandiba to be one of them. He sat in a jail cell at the behest of an oppressive regime for all those years and then emerged to not only reunite a torn nation, but did so with loving compassion. He will always have my respect, in life or in death.

    Rest in peace, brother.

    Well saying Mandela was a democratic socialist and Mussolini was at one point a socialist early in his life.... So yea your wrong. Both were never communists.

    that does not make any sense.

    Mussolini was a facist. FACIST ARE NOT THE SAME AS BEING A COMMUNIST!

    "It is true, as I have already stated, that I have been influenced by Marxist thought. But this is also true of many of the leaders of the new independent States. Such widely different persons as Gandhi, Nehru, Nkrumah, and Nasser all acknowledge this fact. We all accept the need for some form of socialism to enable our people to catch up with the advanced countries of this world and to overcome their legacy of extreme poverty. But this does not mean we are Marxists."-Nelson Mandela.

    All dead are sacred cows IMHO if they are decent people and have lived good lives..
    It sounds like we have several posters who are willing to prove otherwise on Mandela so have at it..
    Another result of our polarized times along with the aid of the internet is how we go postal on the dead..
    Where have you been since February ?

    They are when talking about Obama..
    He forgot who he was talking about..
    Soon GOP Congresspeople will accuse Obama of using the Mandela death as a distraction from PPACA,
    though I know you don't like that elevation in the discourse .
