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.”

Oh no, I agree with Jon Qwelane

It is not often that I agree with Jon Qwelane, that grumpy, tribalistic, sometimes homophobic, Jacob Zuma-supporting columnist, but his latest column seems to be in agreement with my post last week about the arrogance of MEC Bheki Cele. It’s things like this that really cheers me up because it suggests that we are becoming an almost normal society.
