Abstract

This article explores the thinking that has, and is, stifling the ability of South Africans to take full advantage of the resources and capacities available to create safety within South Africa. It further investigates what might be done to develop ways of thinking and acting that respond effectively to the high levels of insecurity that define the South African reality at present.

Keywords: South Africa, safety, security
