Can South Africa Finally Turn The Corner? – OpEd – Eurasia Review
By Dr. John C. Hulsman*
One of my favorite quotes describing the human condition and political risk analysis comes, unsurprisingly, from Shakespeare. In “Julius Caesar,” Cassius turns on his friend (and fellow would-be assassin) Brutus, who is bewailing the curses of fate. Cassius will have none of it, saying: “The fault, dear Brutus, lies not in the stars, but in ourselves.” In other words, man’s failings, rather than bad luck, explain much of the world we actually live in.
