Comments The words "Nelson Mandela is dead" feel strange in the mouth today, almost impossible to say, given the unique way he was both martyred and canonised during his lifetime.
He embodies a paradox: He is a peak of moral authority, rising above the soulless wasteland of the 20th century; he is a universal symbol for goodness and wisdom, for the ability to change, and the power of reconciliation.
In person, he was not notably affectionate, but his image beams a very particular sensation: Mandela epitomised those instincts we most associate with childhood: But he also made us feel good, and warm, and safe, because he found a way to play an ideal father, beyond the confines of his biological family or even his national one.
He was the father we would all have wanted if we could have designed one. He was wise with age, benignly powerful, comfortingly irascible, stern when we needed containing, breathtakingly courageous, affirming when we needed praise — and, of course, possessed of the two childlike qualities that make for the best of fathers: Mandela is often paired with MK Gandhi.
Unlike the godly Indian liberator, however, he was an unapologetic even if delightfully self-deprecating patriarch. He inhabited his paternity in such a way that it seemed fresh and emancipatory even as it comforted in the way it recalled more traditional understandings of what a leader should be.
His daughter Maki once said to him, describing a rebuffed hug: This led to a personality that combined "extreme heartiness with impenetrable reserve", as Arthur Schlesinger famously described Franklin Roosevelt, cited by Anthony Sampson in his biography of Mandela.
For most of humanity, only the heartiness was visible. How do you manage to keep so young? Speaking of the universal experience of suffering and hatred as an "apartheid of the heart", Clinton said that the world adulated Mandela because it sought "wisdom from the power of his example to do whatever we can, however we can, wherever we can, to take the apartheid out of our own and others' hearts".
Second chances Just as apartheid became a global semaphore for evil, so too did Mandela come to symbolise the power of good. Listen, for example, to Clinton's description — 10 years after the above comment — of the roots of Mandela's sanctity: Forgiveness allows both victim and perpetrator to start again, and the way that Mandela bettered himself through adversity serves as an object lesson to us all: Brilliantly, Mandela set himself up to embody the nation — and then, as he saw his effect, to allow himself to be turned into a symbol for that best of human impulses: He made a fetish of his biography.
As he was in chains, so were we; as he managed to negotiate himself into freedom, so could we; as he forgave his oppressors and his adversaries, so must we. Now, though, this makes his death more complicated: Retirement years The Jesus imagery has always been present.
Listen to Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu: But in many other circumstances it can ennoble the sufferer. We are richly blessed that the latter happened with Mandela.Type of Work Julius Caesar is a stage tragedy centering on the assassination of the title character and the downfall and death of the leader of the assassins, Marcus Brutus.

Julius Caesar can be considered both a good and bad leader. Caesar's ability to rise through the ranks quickly and to command armies at such a young age are good examples of his natural leadership.
To be a good leader, you cannot major in minor things, and you must be less distracted than your competition. To get the few critical things done, you must develop incredible selective ignorance.
Brutus is a good leader, he is truthful, he is respected by other members of the senate and the public, and he is a man of conscience.
He is . The words "Nelson Mandela is dead" feel strange in the mouth today, almost impossible to say, given the unique way he was both martyred and canonised during his lifetime.
