Quote of the Day
"[I]t is one of the privileges of the Left to describe its inadequacies as dilemmas and its mistakes as tragedies: where a Conservative would blush and be quiet, a Socialist is privileged to enter a stage of audible self-examination in which the responsibility for his own errors is subtly transferred to the rest of mankind. The alleged dilemmas of Socialism today are nothing more or less than the failure of the whole Socialist technique of arguing straight from abstract principles to policies, the whole heritage of political rationalism in the naive form in which it passed to the intelligentsia of the 1920s and the 1930s. The move towards the Right is a move towards empiricism, towards scepticism of generalities in politics, and towards the belief that sound political thinking must begin from concrete situations understood in the light of the history which created them. It is a repudiation of the tradition of the Encyclopaedists and of the French Revolution, the tradition to which doctrinal Socialism is the heir." - T. E. Utley
