I am always uncomfortable when I hear this used as a postive example.
Mr. Mandela was imprisoned for a variety of violent crimes. He admitted to
his acts of sabotage. He was offered freedome on the condition that he
renounce violence, but he refused the offer.
I cannot see anything praise worthy in these actions.
If we are to speak of anti-apartheid leaders who inspired people in ways
which should be emulated, then we need to tell the story of Mkhuseli Jack.
Mr. Jack was a key leader in the peaceful boycotts and labor strikes which
brought down the oppressive government.
