dc.description.abstract South Africans live in a country that is rich in political contradictions, paradoxes and ambivalences. We have a communist party in government; yet a bitter public service sector strike lasted for almost the whole month of June 2007. Avowed socialists and social democrats, in government with the Communists, have embraced neoliberal economic orthodoxy and the disciplines of the market. A former ANC Communist Party leader and candidate for the ANC chair, Tokyo Sexwale, is a billionaire and took the Donald Trump role in a local version of the television show ‘‘The Apprentice.’’ When a leading media house decided to aim a new publication at Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) shop stewards, it found not only that most of the shop stewards were regular church-goers, but that a sizable number of them were office-bearers in their churches. We have a state broadcasting service that draws almost all of its income from advertizing. And so on.
