The article focuses on political conditions in South Africa which was purely a case of government by law and the government by force. The Suppression of Communism Act reveals the temper of the government more than any other of its legislation. The arrogance and insensitivity of the Nationalist attitude to the colored peoples was rebuked by the Supreme Court. The South African Prime Minister, D. F. Malan and his Nationalist Party set up a parliamentary court which was also declared illegal by the courts. Now they are looking forward to solidify their plans to win the elections in 1953.
