Only if you don’t mind being raped

What does this say about "transitions":

With the possible exception of the fall of fascism in Germany and Japan, the South African experiment represents the most successful transition from authoritarianism the world has yet seen.

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.
