    very fierce criticism. It seems to be highly valued and featured prominently in a front line national publication. I imagine most disagree with your assessment, certainly the PM and right disagree. Do you fear for you freedom to write such an article? I doubt it. Somebody may yell at you at the petro station, but in general you enjoy a very free, pluralistic society, with great personal, professional, and political freedom. I suspect your article will help improve the country. Although only if it keeps the readers engaged in considering more broadly the questions you raise. I can list a string of differences between even the reprehensible citizenship law and Apartheid, or Jim Crow, or any other example. I can also see your point. As long as both sides are visible, your inflammatory writing is surely helpful. So have a good week, enjoy great freedom, and get about improving matters. peace
