While I expect frantic grief over the death of Nelson Mandela to be quite restrained on the Outer Right, it surely has to be admitted that — as Afro-Marxist terrorists go — he was a comparatively moderate type. He represented global Cathedralism well, accepted the unforced surrender offered by this guy with ceremonial dignity, and seems to have made no attempt to accelerate the genocide of the Boers to spasm phase. Things will probably deteriorate significantly with him gone.
ADDED: Not much frantic grief from Ilana Mercer.
ADDED: 28Sherman (from April) on the ruin-in-process.
ADDED: “Mandela was a Communist and he was a terrorist. Yet to believe that these things disqualify him from greatness is to exist so far outside the present day mainstream as to be politically irrelevant.”
