He has been a partner in a major law firm and during the '60s taught constitutional law at Yale Law School. He is the John M. The book was originally published as a hardcover edition in In tracing the evolution of modern liberalism, which, as Robert Bork said, had its roots in the radical student activism of the '60s, he illustrates how society becomes accustomed to each new instant of the increasing deterioration of our culture: He explains how the radical student extremism of the '60s evolved into radical activism for minority rights, feminism, homosexuality, environmentalism and animal rights, thereby correcting the view by many that the New Left of the Sixties collapsed and disappeared.
The reality of it is absolutely frightening: Each of these pursues a piece of the agenda of the cultural and political Left, but they do not announce publicly an overarching program, as the New Left did, that would enable people to see that the separate groups and causes A dolls house feminist thesis up to a general radical philosophy.
Yet these groups are in touch with one another and often come together in a coalition on specific issues. The splintering of the New Left proved to be an advantage because the movement became less visible and therefore more powerful, its goals more attainable, than was the case in the Sixties.
As the rioting and riotousness died down in the early s and seemingly disappeared altogether in the last half of that decade and in the s, it seemed, at last, that the Sixties were over.
It was a malignant decade that, after a fifteen-year remission, returned in the s to metastasize more devastatingly throughout our culture than it had in the Sixties, not with tumult but quietly, in the moral and political assumptions of those who now control and guide our major cultural institutions.
The Sixties radicals are still with us, but now they do not paralyze the universities; they run the universities. If the problem were only the universities and the chattering classes, there might be reason to be more optimistic.
The Sixties have gone farther than that, however. Indeed, the 'radical' values and orientations expressed by SNCC [Student Nonviolent Coordinating Comittee] and SDS workers in the early sixties have become the conventional wisdom of college-educated urban professionals, especially those under thirty-five BORK the fringes to the very midst of contemporary social conflict.
It seems even more true today. Thus, the themes and traits of the New Left have become prominent in today's culture.
As will be seen throughout this book, the Sixties generation's fixation on equality has permeated our society and its institutions, much to our disadvantage.
Their idea of liberty has now become license in language, popular culture, and sexuality. The idea that everything is ultimately political has taken hold. We know its current form as " political correctness ," [my link, WHS F4L] a distemper that afflicts the universities in their departments of humanities, social sciences, and law.
Works of literature are read for their sub-texts, usually existing only in the mind of the politically correct reader, about the oppression of women, Western imperialism, colonialism, and racism. Political correctness is not confined to the enclaves of the academy. It is now to be found in museums, art galleries, seminaries, foundations-all the institutions relating to opinion and attitude formation.
A corollary to the politicization of the culture is the tactic of assaulting one's opponents as not merely wrong but morally evil. That was, of course, a key stratagem of the New Left, and it remains a crucial weapon in modern liberalism's armory.
The rioters in the streets did not criticize the universities as in need of reform but as institutions rotten with immorality from top to bottom. Critics of Hillary Clinton's health care plan were not said to be mistaken but were denounced as greedy pharmaceutical companies, doctors, and insurance companies out to protect their illicit profits.
The student radicals' habitual lying is easily enough explained. They were antinomians, just as those Christian heretics thought themselves freed by God's grace from anv obligation to the moral law, so the student radicals, imbued with the political grace of the Left, were freed of the restraints of law and morality.
It could not be immoral to lie in a noble cause. For the same reason, it could not be wrong to break laws or heads. Modern liberals, being in charge of the institutions they once attacked, have no need to break heads and only an occasional need to break laws.
They do, however, have a need to lie, and do so abundantly, since many Americans would not like their actual agenda. Stanley Rothman and S.Ben Brantley, Charles Isherwood and other New York Times Critics on the plays and musicals currently open in New York City.
