South Africa: Transformation or Liquidation?

"The first step in liquidating a people is to erase its memory. Destroy its books, its culture, its history, Then have somebody write new books, manufacture a new culture, invent a new history. Before long the nation will begin to forget what it is and what it was. The world around it will forget even faster."

Historian Milan Hübl as quoted to Milan Kundera in The Book of Laughter and Forgetting
