Nobody asked but …

Skyler was correct when he posted that there are no gods on the Earth, but sometimes there are exceedingly unique persons.  Nelson Mandela was one of those.  Certainly he was a statist (in the end), but he was also certainly a voluntaryist.  In fact, he was too complex to categorize.  To those whose oxen he gored, royalists, authoritarians, colonialists, exploiters, he was a devil.  To honor him, I will omit his British public school name, Nelson, and I will restore his Xhosa name, Rolihlahla, which meant, if that particular Wikipedia page is honest, “troublemaker.”
