As we approach Mandela Day on July 18, it is great that you published this. Thanks! Wondering if you know when and where Mandela said "Action without vision is only passing time, vision without action is merely day dreaming, but vision with action can change the world."

"The cause of Communism is the greatest cause in the history of mankind" - How To Be A Good Communist by Nelson Mandela

I've never understood people's admiration for a man who's only real accomplishment was being a communist revolutionary who finally gave up terrorist murdering. South Africa's crime and suffering have only increased since he took power.
