“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.
