If Nelson Mandela had been young today

As the former South African president Nelson Mandela is mourned and praised around the world, one can’t help thinking: What would have happened if he had been young today (or what can happen to someone like him, who is young today)? Remember that Mandela was for many years, even until 2008, classified by some as a terrorist. If Mandela had been young today, perhaps he had, like many other suspected terrorists, been killed by a government without a fair trial.
