It is an indication of what Mandela was up against that the man who fought so hard and long against a brutal apartheid regime was so completely defeated when he took power in South Africa. That was because he was no longer struggling against a rogue regime but against the existing order. As I suspect Mandela realised only too well, one cannot lead a revolution when there are no followers.
