Best Quote of the Week – May 1, 2020

“We need liberal democrats to fight against the new populism; liberal socialists to fight against the frequent authoritarianism of left-wing regimes; liberal nationalists to fight against contemporary xenophobic, anti-Muslim, and anti-Semitic nationalisms; liberal communitarians to fight against the exclusivist passions and fierce partisanship of some ‘identity’ groups; and liberal Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists to fight against the unexpected return of religious zealotry.  These are among the most important political battles of our time, and the adjective ‘liberal’ is our most important weapon.”

Michael Walzer, writer and political theorist, in Dissent
