Liberalism in America

Alexis Gravel (CC-BY-ND)

Chris Hedges, who for 15 years was a foreign correspondent for the New York Times, has written an analysis of the 2012 presidential election in the United States of America. He writes that, “The ineffectiveness of the liberal class, as was true in Weimar Germany, perpetuates a dangerous political paralysis. The longer the paralysis continues, the longer systems of power are unable to address the suffering and grievances of the masses, the more the formal mechanisms of power are reviled.”

That comment ought to cause self-identified liberals to pay attention, no?
