Mandela's African Dream

Below are two more quotes from Nelson Mandela, South Africa former president:
  1. I dream of an Africa which is in peace with itself'.
  2. I dream of the realization of the unity of Africa, whereby its leaders combine in their efforts to solve the problems of this continent. I dream of our vast deserts, of our forests, of all our great wildernesses.

Wouldn't it be nice if we, as Africans, were at peace with our Africaness, its beauty, difficulties and challenges and all of its riches (minerals)?

And what's your dream of/for Africa and its people?

Not sure if this interests you... but the following is one of many comments censored by ThoughtLeader. I notice you are not censored; dont think you should be. Good comments. Just thought I'd let you know though. Some are: Here is the comment:

ThoughtLeader: Iranian Protests Confirm ANC on right track with media freedom

Your comment is awaiting moderation.
You say: “Other than Minister Hogan being taken to task for expressing her views, which is regrettable, South Africa is witnessing robust debate, protests and a free press.”
If that is true, why are the South AFrican Press’s robust debate silent — and the M&G blogs censoring comments — about the Legal and Political Petition to the Nobel Institute: Norwegian Nobel Committee: Notice of Legal and Political Request to: (I) Withdraw Nobel Peace Prize’s from Nelson Mandela, F.W. de Klerk, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, for (a) Intellectual Dishonesty & Hypocrisy; (b) Moral, Political and Religious Prostitution; and (c) ‘TRC-RSA’ Fraud and Betrayal; and (II) Accept Nobel Peace Prize Nominations for Dr. Albert Bartlett; Dr. Garret James Harden, and Dr. M. King Hubbert, for Intellectually Honest and Politically Honourable Ecologically Sustainable, Human Rights, Peace and Social Justice Advocacy.?
How is censorship of such info & evidentary documentation, ‘robust debate’?
