The South African miracle rising and falling pattern makes for an interesting inquest. A rainbow nation of chickens seemingly reluctant to hatch, or just hoping to indefinitely delay the coming out. The question of which came first very relevant in the current discourse. Do we first seek stability then effect change afterwards? Or do we effect change then seek stability thereafter?
In 1994 we seem to have opted for stability first with a view to changing overtime. To be more blunt, South Africa chose peace above change. It is not that straightforward though. Peace itself was change. De Klerk
