Democracy & Delusion: 10 Myths in South African Politics
HSB 20 - 18
12:00 to 13:30
Many common political arguments come pre-packaged in an old and dusty book – but the self-evident truths are not, in fact, so indisputable. Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh sets out to dismantle that box. He argues that free education is far from impossible, the ANC’s liberation narrative is too idyllic to swallow, land reform is not the first step to chaos, and the media is not free…...In this inclusive, informed book we find not only challenges to commonly held opinions, but optimism about South Africa’s future, and solutions to old problems. A fresh perspective on South African politics. The book launch is organized into a discussion on how South African politics is riddled with delusions. The book and album will be available for sale!
