Quote of the Day: Typical Liberals

A quote from Hal Draper (a socialist) on Liberalism

Quote Hal Draper

But the typical liberal, who cannot break with the ’system, has to settle for something else: protesting the best of intentions (sincerely) while being dragged along by the system he supports, or busying him­self with filing off the sharp corners or rough edges on the towing chain which drags him; and meanwhile congratulating himself on doing an indispensable smoothing job which the callous powers-that-be are too heartless to attend to.

I sincerely start to believe that Hal Draper was one of the best socialist thinkers of the last century. Read the whole thing, quite enlightening.
