"The Year of the Dragon" was the result of a challenge to write a novel in the genre of Charles Williams, and one of the concepts developed by Williams and his friends (the Inklings) was the Arthurian distinction between Britain (this world) and Logres (Britain's better nature -- Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde applied to nations). I believe South Africa had its "Logres moment" between 1989 and 1999, and then the old bad nature resurfaced. And yes, someone needs to write about that, Same dragon returned? Different dragon? I don't know, but it needs to be someone more familiar with a different manifestations of evil. (less)

But they have a habit of reappearing in different guises. As Paolo Freire, the Brazilian educationist, put it, the oppressed internalises the image of the oppressor and so becomes an oppressor in turn. So in Soweto in 1976 A.P. Treurnicht and Ferdi Hartzenberg were channelling Alfred Lord Milner, and by 2046, if not sooner, some Minister of Education will be channelling them.(less)
