Who would’ve thought that fighting for freedom in post-94 South Africa would be such an uphill battle?

I'm convinced that we are. There is a de jure Constitution, which is the text. There is also a de facto constitution, which is the political reality, regardless of what the document says. The de facto constitution carries much more weight than the de jure constitution.
Maybe we are reading different constitutions

Depends on how low your standard of freedom is.
I thought South Africa is a free country

Yesterday I was told by the waiter who welcomed me at a restaurant that I have to wear a mask while I walk from the door to my table, but once I get to my table, I can take it off. The table was 2 meters from the door.

Teach your kids to grow up and cherish what they have inherited. It's much better advice than to tell them to grow up and "change the world". Encouraging someone to change things for the sake of changing them is actually really bad advice.

We attach way too much weight to the opinions of academics and political commentators.

The best thing government can do now is *not* to try and save the economy. It's better for all of us if they simply do nothing.

Do you think @afriforum should approach the ConCourt to allow the Premier of the Western Cape to call a referendum regarding greater autonomy (more federal powers) for the province? #CapeAutonomy
