Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

The Port Huron Statement

I just re-read the Port Huron Statement (along with the Sharon Statement) for class tomorrow.  What was striking was that it read fundamentally like something that Sandernistas could have written today.  It is the perpetual lament of the Left.

What makes it especially interesting is just today Tom Hayden endorsed Hillary Clinton.  If you live long enough, the Radicals settle into Liberalism.  Revolutions only really appeal to the young.
