    KAGAN'S A SOCIALIST

    Here's parts of her Thesis.
    http://www.weeklystandard.com/weblog...an_radical.asp


    "In our own times, a coherent socialist movement is nowhere to be found in the United States. Americans are more likely to speak of a golden past than of a golden future, of capitalism's glories than of socialism's greatness. Conformity overrides dissent; the desire to conserve has overwhelmed the urge to alter. Such a state of affairs cries out for explanation. Why, in a society by no means perfect, has a radical party never attained the status of a major political force? Why, in particular, did the socialist movement never become an alternative to the nation's established parties?"(pp. 127)
    "Through its own internal feuding, then, the SP exhausted itself forever and further reduced labor radicalism in New York to the position of marginality and insignificance from which it has never recovered. The story is a sad but also a chastening one for those who, more than half a century after socialism's decline, still wish to change America. Radicals have often succumbed to the devastating bane of sectarianism; it is easier, after all, to fight one's fellows than it is to battle an entrenched and powerful foe. Yet if the history of Local New York shows anything, it is that American radicals cannot afford to become their own worst enemies. In unity lies their only hope." (pp. 129-130)
    Her political sympathies (at the time) seem quite clear -- and radical

    Who would have evey thought bambam would pick a socialist? In the past they would have at least tried to hide their true leanings. What PI$$ES me off is they don't care what anyone knows or thinks now.They just dare anyone to do anything about it.They need to remember "the same dog don't lay in the sun every day" Their time will come.
    Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?
