    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ 3) MOSLEY: "THE WIND OF CHANGE HAS BLOWN BACK UPON ITS AUTHORS. ATTEMPTS TO ESTABLISH MULTI-RACIAL SOCIETIES HAVE RESULTED IN THE EMERGENCE OF BLACK DICTATORSHIP EMPLOYING TYRANNICAL METHODS WHICH ARE THE REVERSE OF DEMOCRACY AND ARE OPENING THE DOOR TO COMMUNISM. BUT WHAT IS VITAL IS THAT THE PRINCIPLES OF GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE CLEAR-CUT AND STABLE. CENTRAL GOVERNMENT MUST EITHER BE IN WHITE HANDS OR IN BLACK HANDS. IT IS NOW CLEAR THAT YOU CANNOT MIX THE TWO.



    "ALL SHOULD, OF COURSE, ENJOY THE BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS -- PERSONAL FREEDOM, SECURITY OF PROPERTY AND EQUALITY OF OPPORTUNITY. THERE REMAINS ALWAYS THE MOST VEXED PROBLEM OF THEM ALL WHICH CAN BE BRIEFLY DESCRIBED AS SOCIAL INTERCOURSE. THE IDEAL IS TO HAVE TWO ENTIRELY SEPARATE BUT FRIENDLY PEOPLES LIVING SIDE BY SIDE, EACH WITH THEIR OWN INSTITUTIONS AND PRIDE IN THEIR OWN COMMUNITY. THAT IS WHY IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THE BANTUSTAN POLICIES OF YOUR GOVERNMENT ARE WISE EXPERIMENTS WHICH ARE WORTHY OF SUPPORT".
