Bad news

“I’ve got bad news; every culture – European or African, Australian or Icelandic – has good and bad elements to it. The universal battle for basic human rights, a bloody and messy historical fight, is the battle against these encroachments on individual liberties. Any ideology – nationalism through fascism through totalitarianism – that promotes the collective interest above individual liberties is a force in opposition to what progress humanity has made in that regard.” – Gareth van Onselen (“Analysis of and commentary on South African politics from a liberal perspective.”)
