The year 2024 marks the so-called 30 years of constitutional democracy in South Africa. To those who subscribe to this idea, the so-called first democratic elections of 1994 mark the beginning of a nonracial democratic dispensation in South Africa. Reconciliation between blacks and whites through the “entrancing” magic of Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela symbolised [...] The post Thirty years of South African constitutional democracy and the crisis of Black Thought appeared first on Consciousness.co.za Magazine ..read more

The problem of Afrikan politics and the danger of white politics in South Africa
Consciousness.co.za
by Masilo Lepuru
1M ago
One of the significant benefits of an Afrikan-centred study of European thought and behaviour is the fundamental discovery that “politics is the continuation of war by other means”. Politics in essence is about power. While elections are a function of a representative democracy, they are not the core of power.

As a people, our inclined notion that mother nature is able to take care of herself is irrefutable. Throughout times, whether sunrise or sunset, without cessation, she evolves and re affirms herself as a persevering entity. Much like jazz, her modulation is gradual, and in the same length, definite.

The effort of resistance gives our bodies tone, and our voices resonance. Tone is a sound, which adds other layers to what we say.
