This article is based on a public lecture that I presented at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg in August 2007. The lecture formed part of my teaching and research involvement with the Wits Law School as a Bram Fischer Visiting Scholar during the month of August 2007. The invitation to become a Bram Fischer Visiting Scholar and to give a public address in memory of Bram Fischer posed a daunting challenge. How is one to honour the memory and legacy of Bram Fischer, Bram Fischer the boere communist, after long reigns of communisms that, instead of vindicating the thinking of Marx, only served to discredit it; instead of destroying the state, only served to inflate the state and entrench it in every imaginable walk of life; instead of terminating the law in the name of a classless humanity, only served to dehumanise the law?
