Collective will is not the same as collective intelligence. White South Africans seem particularly prone to dangerous manifestations of electoral stupidity.
Apartheid immediately springs to mind: not only did whites massively endorse it but they persisted with this insanity for almost 50 years. Thus it should come as no surprise that the ANC hopes in the May election to draw its biggest-ever white vote.
Yup, the party that implemented affirmative action, racial quotas, and property expropriation, predicts a white vote bonanza.
