Quote of the week

In “The Old Regime and the Revolution”… Alexis de Tocqueville observed that, in the decades leading up to the Revolution, France had been notably prosperous and progressive. We hear a lot about the hunger and the song of angry men, and yet the truth is that, objectively, the French at the start of the seventeen-eighties had less cause for anger than they’d had in years. Tocqueville thought it wasn’t a coincidence. “Evils which are patiently endured when they seem inevitable, become intolerable when once the idea of escape from them is suggested,” he wrote.

The good news from “Dr” Molapo and “Dr” Maxwell

Some examples of what judges would have had to endure if they had attended the “Leadership Conference”, which they were urged to attend by Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng. All I can say is that I am glad I did not have to attend this event. Apart from the lack of fashion sense displayed by the speakers, I would have felt pretty insulted for being sold this quackery and having had to PAY to attend to listen to it.

First up, “Dr” David Molapo:

Second up, “Dr” John Maxwell
