The Mandela Market

Communists have always played an active role in the fight by colonial countries for their freedom, because the short-term objectives of Communism would always correspond with the long-term objects of freedom movements.
- Nelson Mandela

All that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned, and man is at last compelled to face with sober senses the real condition of life and his relations with his kind.     
- Karl Marx

Quite the exhaustive survey, that. I believe about the only thing that's missing is a screengrab from the closing sequence of Spike Lee's Malcolm X.

I actually had twice as many celebs and crummy politicians to paste in, but poor ol' Nelson seemed a bit exhausted!

Funny you should mention that movie - for all the hype and discussion it generated at the time, it's kinda forgotten nowadays. Methinks a post may be in order...

PS. The one with Bush II is a prime contender for a 'funny caption' competition.
