Abstract

However stifling the policies of the United States since World War II, American progressives have assumed that some bright day, sooner or later, these dreary blunderings must come to an end. Then this nightmarish old regime will give way to a brave new era, and a rejuvenated America will resume its place in the forward march of civilization. Socialism perchance will displace capitalism. Just how this great transition will take place evokes bitter arguments. But that it will somehow occur has seldom been seriously doubted. Long-run optimism has been the common premise of the contending splinters on the American Left.
