First Post: Right Analysis, Crass Gallery Pleasing Headline

Anthony Daniels on First post has the post-Liberation Africa analysis about right I think. But the headline, putting a very sticky problem entirely at the feet of a nonagenarian hero as his personal failure is crass, almost Daleian in its crassness. Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Terror follows Revolution as sure as night follows day. EXCEPT in African terms, so far at least, in South Africa. The SUCCESS of Nelson Mandela. Did Daniels provide or approve his own headline?
