INTRO ---- South Africa is a morass of wretched inequality, racial tensions and class conflicts, its transition limited & frustrating. Much blame certainly lies with ongoing "white monopoly capital" power, but it’s essential to note major "denationalisation" to foreign capital, and avoid blind-spots towards the state. The state is a key owner of means of production (and of most means of coercion & administration), and a site of centralised elite power. A single South African ruling class exists, of (mainly white) private and (mainly black) state elites, which are structurally & programmatically allied and entangled. Elections do not change this, raising the question of whether voting can emancipate the oppressed black working class. ...
