    Hmmm… not going to argue about the book, I haven’t and probably won’t read it. But… from the tone of his critique of what he found in that book it would be interesting to see what Mr. Kazin would say about a book that addresses the true and definable dangers of the American Left: the inherent bias of a culture justified by mitigating the pathos of social injustice even if said pathos must be manufactured to that need; a culture where the individuals are encouraged to support their ego-self on guilty delusions of society’s past transgressions; the acute positive feedback dangers to any form of Democratic self rule found when a major cultural demographic of said Democracy is of such a conformist collectivist nature that the denizens of that demographic do not demonstrate sufficient internal authority of self to choose their own authorities based on their own sound reasoning and rational opinion.

    It would be interesting to see what he might say in an attempt to dismiss and discredit a book such as that, but not interesting enough to make it worth my time to write it.
