Quote of the week

Now you cannot understand anything about fascist doctrine if you do not understand that their central claim was that liberalism is antidemocratic; in other words, the fascists claimed that liberal institutions cannot represent the will of the people. They further claimed that their typical institutions, particularly the party, were more effective means to represent the will of the people. So fascists were “authoritarian democrats.”

More on Judges

My slightly elaborated take in Business Day on the topic of the disciplining of judges. Since talking on this topic yesterday on RSG, I had interesting correspondence from Judge Louis Harms on the topic. He suggests that there are possibly other serious problems with the proposed legislation and points to the fact that the Minister will be involved in finalising the Code of Conduct in consultation with the Chief Justice. When I have more time I will return to this topic.
