I’m back in Johannesburg for an extended African stay, after an absence of over 35 years. There's no immigration paperwork, and I'm simply issued a visa at the airport. From Perth it's been an 11hr flight, across the Indian Ocean, skirting Mauritius and Mozambique.
The city is waking to another sky of azure blue, the signature of a high veldt winter. But there are looming clouds: the uncertain health of the elder statesman Nelson Mandela, a remarkable man having once inspired a young Barack Obama to urge his college board of trustees to divest South African investments as a protest against...

Last August, in China’s Hunan province, a woman by the name of Tang Hui was sent to a labour camp, sentenced to eighteen months‘re-education’ for “seriously disturbing the social order and exerting a negative impact on society.” Why, you may wonder, what was her crime? Simply that she had repeatedly petitioned officials, saying that the sentences passed against the men who had kidnapped, raped and forced her eleven-year-old daughter into prostitution should have been more severe.
Times have changed, even in China. In times past Tang Hui would simply have vanished into night and fog.... (more)

Democracy, Rule of Law, Human Rights, Media freedom, judicial reforms, all seems to be getting outdated issues day by day as no substantial reforms or achievements are seen in any of these fields since long time, except hearing these words like parrot-cries. And simply by hooting on those issues from time to time in one or the other plotforms of the media or in acadamic seminares by media tycoons, by social reformists, Judges, bureaucrats and Law makers, just we are making a show off to the innocent public through electronic and print media and projecting ourselves as sincere and honest intellectual...

... Iceland, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain and Sweden. In Mexico, same-sex marriages are only performed in Mexico City, but these marriages must be recognized by all 31 Mexican states. I'm still impressed that Mexico is more progressive than the United States in terms of Human Rights, now they just need better labor laws.

... hard constructions and strained inferences, for there is no worse torture than that of laws.
So wrote Sir Francis Bacon four hundred years ago. Not that much has changed; for some laws are torture and the interpretation of law even more tortuous, the interpretation specifically of the Human Rights Act.

The result has been a huge stomach ache, with a headache added as a bonus.
