Description

Ambassadors of Globalisation provides historical analysis of South Africa s road of popular resistance to foreign domination to date. The book amplifies the assertion that what was widely construed as the entry of the country into true democracy in 1994 was and still remains an illusion. In fact, the Anglo American Empire merely unleashed another tool of dominance in place of the old. Time had come for the Empire to co opt some leaders of the liberation movement as partners to the crime of brute exploitation. However, the moment of respite the Empire sought to gain has proven unsustainable. Recent brutal suppression of legitimate demands of the North West Marikana miners attests. This book provides the narrative that contradicts the widely held view that Mr. Nelson Mandela and former exiled African National Congress liberated South Africa. Whilst the collapse of Apartheid was through multifaceted effort internationally and internally, internal people s effort, seldom proportionately credited, was the center of gravity. Distorting this reality created conditions the Empire exploited to put into power, trusted surrogates of transition Ambassadors of Globalisation. The resultant respite enabled the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank to entrench their liberalisation drive which gained speed under the Nationalist Party government that privatized essential State assets in 1989. It would be politically naïve or ignorant to contemplate exemption of a country rich in natural resources like South Africa from such machinations. For this reason, the Empire s propaganda machinery elevated the name of Mandela at the expense of the likes of Biko who were at the center of gravity of struggle. The author concludes by proposing empirically founded solutions of saving South Africa s incessant slide into catastrophic abyss. The National Development Plan, widely seen as source of salvation is dissected by the author to its ahistorical and delusionary essence. As long as citizens remain victims of toxic propaganda, the author contends, patronage to obsolete alliances and social superstructure elements will only perpetuate senseless bondage.
