Thanks for That

Some Perspective, if you Will


From !NoPasaran!

The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of "liberalism," they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.... I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.

- Norman Mattoon Thomas, 1944, socialist,

pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate

of the Socialist Party of America

I saw that one the other day and vowed to use it; if not on the blog, then to try to work it into casual conversation.

Spooky that since 1944 so little has changed.
