This is the dream they pledge to deliver – the South African dream of one nation, with one future, living together under the constitution in peace, security and prosperity, with opportunity and recognition for all the rainbow people.
The three components of the Open Opportunity Society for All
The term “Open Opportunity Society for All” brings together three key concepts:–
Individual freedom under the rule of law – an open society;
Opportunity with responsibility – an opportunity society; and
Full equality for all.
In doing so, it creates a fourth concept that underpins our vision of the proper relationship between individuals, the state and society in South Africa today. Our vision is grounded in the idea that every human being has a right to dignity. Human dignity is the foundational concept that informs our values and vision.
