50 Years of Dissent

A look at the evolution of Dissent magazine through its 50 years of existence traces leftist thought up to its current state:

The left of today seems motivated not by a desire to help those in need but by an incessant need to fragment the American community any way it can, the better to assume power and keep it. Class, race, reckless charges of conspiracy or imperialism – any wedge will do. In the meantime, government continues to grow, even under a conservative like President Bush, and the welfare state is always there, willing to annex another piece of free ground. Moreover, the political correctness brought to us by government and academic edict has put the independent thinker, not to mention common sense, at risk.
