Unselfish love and political rebuilding

Despite long-standing political structures, significant change has begun to ripple through South Africa's political, financial, educational, and social systems. And people on all sides agree: change has just begun.

Much work lies ahead, and those who care about this vast and beautiful country are searching for patterns on which to build the nation anew. Among those who care deeply for the country and its people is South African writer Michael Cassidy.

Mr. Cassidy is the author of The Politics of Love. Frankly, Mr. Cassidy's description of love as a powerful basis for practical restructuring reminded us of the writings of Sentinel founder Mary Baker Eddy. She, too, viewed love as a far cry from merely kindly, fragile human sentiment. Genuine love, rooted in God, divine Love, she described as the power underlying the abolition of slavery in the United States.
