What does this say about "transitions":
How can someone write an article suggesting that South Africa's "transition" should be a model for other countries without mentioning this? Iran, if it follows South Africa's model could, also, descend into anarchic, bloody, third-worldism. Perhaps it could elect a AIDS-denying, rapist as its president. It's not clear (to me at least) that such an outcome would be much of an improvement over a holocaust denier.
