“The unexamined life is not worth living”, said Socrates. So, too, is an unexamined culture. This blog will explore the plethora of political intrigue that grips South Africa and the world. It will delve into concepts and ideas that affect us and mould us. Cultural landscapes will be navigated, politics unraveled, minds psychoanalysed and society critiqued.

My name is Sam van Heerden, currently majoring in Politics, Philosophy and Journalism at Rhodes University in South Africa. I am an aspiring writer and analyst in the fields of politics, philosophy and social commentary.
