Nelson Mandela set out several ideals for the future of South Africa, including:
Nonracialism: Mandela believed that South Africa should be a country where people of all races were treated equally and had the same opportunities.
Reconciliation: After the end of apartheid, Mandela stressed the importance of bringing South Africans of all races together and healing the divisions that had been created by the previous system of racial segregation.
Democracy: Mandela fought for a democratic system of government in South Africa, in which all people had the right to participate in the political process and have a say in the decisions that affected their lives.
Social justice: Mandela believed in creating a more equitable society in which the needs of the poor and disadvantaged were taken into account and addressed.
Human rights: Mandela was a strong advocate for human rights and worked to ensure that the rights of all South Africans were protected.
