"They are on the defensive, they and their authority are being questioned and exposed by more people every day. How indeed can these characters explain themselves? They obviously cannot tell the truth about their intentions. What would they say? That blacks must suffer longer because whites are a superior race? That the Vietnamese should be slaughtered because the United States must control Asia? That rotten education should be perpetuated because the power structure needs a class of robots at its disposal? This power structure is bankrupt. Having no solutions to the pressing economic and social needs of people, they must think of an excuse."
Tom Hayden, "Rebellion and Repression," 1969
And for the record, MMC thinks Barbara Boxer is a great American as well.
