In the Rainbow Nation

I found Jenny Diski’s LRB essay on post-apartheid South Africa to be thoughtful and well-observed, without being cynical. I don’t really want to excerpt any part of it; just read it all here. Doesn’t political change, no matter how hard people fight for it, always end up being different than anyone expected? Minds don’t change as quickly as governments do. A useful reminder, I think, for our electoral season.
