Vrroon with a View CONTEXT is everything. It informs pretty much everything we do; how we solve problems and how we make decisions.

In this context, where violent entitlement to what belongs to others is widespread and deemed entirely normal, I have been completely stunned by the unutterably awful whingeing about the National Empowerment Fund's (NEF) decision to invest in a luxurygoods shop called Luminance at Hyde Park shopping centre in Joburg.
