At least he had the opportunity to assist in the ending of apartheid.

Had he been in China, promo ...

I think ending apartheid has nothing to do with promoting a democratic platform
Please don't shoot, I'm just a babe.

Nelson Mandela, a man who inspires the world.

Spent 27 long years in jail without compromise-- do you think an ordinary man can do it? He could have a luxurious individual life by making compromise.

Mandela reminds me of the Dalai Lama. He was a paid western democracy puppet.
Stocks in Suu Kyi are  ...

Mandela was never paid by any outsiders. Mandela sacrificed his life for the people of Africa, and Lama??? He has been enjoying one cabinet minister like facilities in India. His main God father is India. So, plz don't compare!!!!!!!!!!!!

His 27 years of harsh imprisonment (though toward the end, as the whites saw the writing on the wall, his conditions improved), make Mandela a true hero. His iron-strong character, his amazing capacity to forgive and address the future needs of his fellow humans elevate him to a form of sainthood. No man in my time on earth is better. Mandela was never a puppet to the selfish and backward capitalist and neo-imperialist forces! He consistently opposed them. The remaining poverty in South Africa is due to a low educational level and corrupt people of all races. But the infrastructure and traditions of the "West" (including schools) will help South Africa advance much faster than other African countries. Everyone is adopting the GOOD aspects of "Western" civilization. All should ADMIT that!
What's on your mind...
