Most school children would have heard the axiom that each generation  
rewrites its own history. But it does so not merely by giving different answers  to 
old questions of exploitation but by posing entirely different questions.  When 
one understands this, it becomes clear why South African parliamentarians  
would be traveling to Cuito Cuanavale without encouraging the writing of the  
texts that can explain to the youths the realities of the battles to end  
apartheid. The leaders are afraid of this history because they fear that the  youths 
will gain the courage to find new forms of struggle against the new  ruling 
classes across Southern Africa. The absence of the memory of the  victories 
over colonialism and apartheid stem in part from the bankruptcy of the  political 
leaders in most of Southern Africa.

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it  is 
violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." Arthur  
Schopenhauer (1788-1860)
