1 INTRODUCTION

    A concern for human rights shouldn't lead
    us to extol the 'joys' of the liberal
    capitalism of which they're an integral
    part. There's no democratic state that's
    not compromised to the very core by its
    part in generating human misery.'
I seek to provide an explanation for the
disjunction between the lived realities
of   marginalised, displaced  and
impoverished collectivities in the neo-
colonial South African nation state and
the language, politics and practices of
human or constitutional rights that
represent them. I focus on individuals
