The release of Mandela is cause for rejoicing for many of us. Perhaps, however, the demonstrations marking it should be seen less as victory celebrations and more as "pep rallies." A different game is about to begin. The home team (the regime) has written the rule book and furnished the umpires, but both sides have fielded authentic teams and the playing field has been made more level. It will be a stiff contest with high stakes and much to be worked through. As never before, the whole world is in the bleachers, sensing, no doubt, that its own drama is being played out--the truth that none are free until all are free.
