It is now broadly accepted that long term shifts occur in the values that people hold which determine their behaviour. In the South African context this process is being accelerated by the clash between ideologies. It is argued that there is one megatrend in South Africa, namely Equality, which is leading to the development of parallel and reactionary sub-trends. In many respects South Africa is moving in the opposite direction to other developed countries, but it cannot hide from certain global influences, in particular the gathering world-wide concern about Environmental Conservation. These deep-seated changes, which, for the most part, reflect a conflict between the freedom of the individual and a desire for uniformity, have considerable significance for communication and marketing.
