About Me:

Angus Douglas is a writer, speaker and business philosopher. He has written and performed numerous plays and talks on the South African writer Herman Charles Bosman. He is currently researching Jan Smuts, around whose life and philosophy he as based his latest presentation: Jan Smuts - New Age Man.

When will South Africa have its Deng Xiaoping moment? The Chinese communist leader famously said, “It doesn’t matter whether a cat is white or black, as long as it catches mice.”

Our current crop of South African politicos did not invent this politics of victimhood and exclusion. They’re only the latest in a long line.

It’s ironic that Zuma compromises South Africa’s sovereignty, handing over political decisions to the Guptas; like chiefs of yore tricked into giving away their land for beads and trinkets.

When the news of Brian Molefe’s involvement with the Gupta’s broke it was a sad day for me because I had the honour of getting to know Brian when he was at Transnet.

I will soon be dead, but my legacy will live on. And, I will be remembered as the man who unwittingly gave the country to those who would take us back to a pre-modern, sectarian past. All the good I have done will be over-shadowed by the very infamy of this policy of strict segregation.

If David Cameron had studied South African history, he may have avoided his massive miscalculation in agreeing to the Brexit referendum.

Soon after the announcement of the 1948 elections Nelson Mandela and Oliver Tambo were walking together when they heard that DF Malan’s Reunited National Party had beaten Jan Smuts’s United Party.

All it takes to poison the political atmosphere is an insidious idea.

Did Jan Smuts Predict the New Age Movement?

Over Christmas I caught up with my father. On every possible political issue I am to the left of him. As usual he baited me on gay rights, race, colonialism and the like.

As Africa’s biggest trading partner, China is fully invested in Africa’s success.
