So true. But society has tried so hard over the past two decades to turn Madiba into a friendly wise old grandfather. But his power and historic defiance and resistance will always live on.
Remember that when that record came out a lot of people didn't know who he was. There was a joke going around about "Free Nelson Mandela - with every copy of this record!"

Dug out the old scratchy 12" of this on the day following his death and played it very loud indeed.
