Tin gods

“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance and there is no way in which you can assume that yesterday’s oppressed will not become tomorrow’s oppressors. … I didn’t struggle in order to remove one set of those who thought they were tin gods and replace them with others who are tempted to think they are. … Sycophants are the worst possible thing to have around you when you are in power.”

TRC chairman, Archbishop Desmond Tutu
