The hatred the ‘Christian’ right wing harbors for the SA Constitution is not htere because of an absence of ‘God’ in state machinery and the excised phrase ‘in humble submission to almighty God’ – but because it no longer places THEM in a position to claim that THEY represent the will of that ‘God’ and to act as though it were true.
If the surprise outcome of the recent UK referendum – on whether to leave or remain in the European Union – teaches us anything, it is that supposedly worthy displays of democracy in action can actually do more harm than good. Witness a nation now more divided; an intergenerational schism in the making; both a governing and opposition party torn to shreds from the inside; infinitely more complex issues raised than satisfactory solutions provided. It begs the question ‘Was it really all worth it’ ?
Becoming a part of a movement doesn’t help anybody think clearly.
