Abstract
The Republic of South Africa has developed a strong sense of insecurity for historical and cultural reasons. Culturally, there was a religious and racial aversion to the black Africans in the region. Added to the perception was an antagonism which developed between Boers and the British in the area. To ensure racial purity and the survival of a "purified" Afrikaner society, Afrikanerdom looked to a republic as its means of salvation. With the founding of the Republic of South Africa, however, the Afrikaner's sense of insecurity has persisted.
