O crepúsculo dos (falsos) deuses

Nelson Mandela: Another False God de Kerry Bolton

Mandela’s name cannot be spoken of by television and radio journalists other than with tone of utmost reverence. I recall when he was released from jail and women radio hosts were imparting the news while hardly holding back cries of joy. He has long been treated as godlike. As I am writing this, I am listening to television news stating that he is in deteriorating condition, and making the invariable references to having brought “freedom to the rainbow nation.” I see his visage portrayed on the colored glass of a church in South Africa while a black congregation sings his praises.
