From author Martin Warburg comes a provocative book that takes an in-depth look at South Africa. Is South Africa Too Dumb for Democracy? reviews South Africa since the demise of apartheid and spotlights adopted ideologies that have promoted joblessness, undermined education, endangered public health and stimulated staggeringly high rates of violent crime.

In this compelling book, the author analyses reasons for dysfunctional state departments, failing public utilities and crumbling infrastructure and identifies possible remedies, arguing that the resources for a successful society have been there all the time, but are eschewed for ideological reasons.

Warburg concludes that inappropriate cultural values and neglect of the individual’s role have stifled the advancement of sound democracy and economic progress. This thought-provoking literary work promotes the incentivisation of free choice and rejection of South Africa’s state ideology as key to the nation’s democratic survival.
