Land Reform and Farm Murders in South Africa: The Untold Story of The Boers And The ANC
In the final analysis, the farm seizures in South Africa aren't just about dispossessing an unpopular, market dominant racial minority - though that would be disturbing enough. It's also a threat to South Africa's incredibly fragile democracy. The ANC is a dominant party with little chance of losing elections and thus, little reason to behave accountably. Add to this the lack of a broad-based middle class with a vested interest in strong property rights, and you have a recipe for kleptocracy and starvation.
