This is a response from prominant memebers of the South African Communist Party (SACP) to the debate raised by the ANC- Youth league regarding Nationalisation of the South African mining sector.

*/The People Shall Share in the Country's Wealth!/*

The national wealth of our country, the heritage of South Africans, shall be restored to the people;//The mineral wealth beneath the soil, the Banks and monopoly industry
shall be transferred to the ownership of the people as a whole;//All other industry and trade shall be controlled to assist the wellbeing of the people;//All people shall have equal rights to trade where they choose, to manufacture and to enter all trades, crafts and professions./*/Freedom Charter, 1955/*

In Makeni, Lusaka, at the HQ of the ANC's Department of Information and Publicity there was an old man called Mpanza, /umgwenya,/ who was responsible for maintenance of the complex. He had little formal education, and so we rarely involved him in our discussions on scripts for Radio Freedom and Mayibuye, our arrogant assumption being that he had nothing profound to contribute.

Until one day when he found us debating whether the Freedom Charter would lead to socialism or not: his intervention in flowery /isiZulu/, was profound - tribute to the night schools of the liberation movement before its banning. Especially when we achieve our freedom there will be intense struggle around this issue, he argued, because the Charter can be interpreted in all kinds of ways. Capitalist-oriented freedom fighters will pull it in their direction, while socialist-oriented ones will pull it in a different direction; and this will ultimately be resolved by the balance of forces.

Dissidents not only have to be willing to tell the truth about the delusions of the dominant culture, but make sure we don't fall into delusions of our own.

In mainstream politics in the United States, everyone agrees on one
thing: We're number one. We're special. We're America. We're on top,
where we deserve to be. In dissident politics in the United States, we have long argued that this quest for economic and military dominance can't be squared with basic moral and politicalprinciples. We're on top, but it's unjust and unsustainable.
