Abstract

Harry and Paul—but especially Harry—were occasionally criticized by some on the left for a seeming contradiction between their advocacy of socialism and their support for what were thought to be reformist measures like single-payer universal health insurance, something that MR has supported for at least a quarter century. For Harry socialism was not only a theoretical construct or merely a tool for the analysis of the iniquities of capitalism. It was all of these things of course, but it was a guide to everyday action; in other words, a kind of socialism on the ground.
