« A Fundamental Transformation | Main | Leftism: A Radical Faith »

Quote of the Day

"[I]n every society there is a sizeable proportion of men and women who hate liberty - consequently truth. The aspiration to live in a tyrannical system, whether as a participant in the exercise of power, or . . . as a slave to it, serves to explain [the] rise and longevity of totalitarian regimes[.] Capitalistic democracies don't need to commit crimes in order to survive, while totalitarian states have no alternative."

Revel, Jean-Francois, Last Exit to Utopia, Encounter, NY, 2000, p. 86
