From Richard Weaver in his book “In Defense of Tradition”, with special emphasis:
I once defined a liberal as a person who is not a communist but who cannot give any good reason for not being one. This makes him all the more dangerous as an unconscious instrumentality. He can appear as a humanitarian and an idealist at the very time that he is being used by those who have the most cynical ends in view.
Every Socialist, ever, says sooner or later: it’s never been truly tried.
