To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed. You could line up all the pols in the U.S. in a straight row and examine them head to toe and not find a single man or woman capable of admitting, never mind ending, the corruption of their vocation--Buddy Dooley

I've placed another piece in CounterPunch, my favorite political journal.

It's a rewrite of a chapter from my memoir, A Marvelous Paranoia, recalling my community organizing days in Maine in the mid-1970s and meeting Michael Harrington.
