Quote Of The Day, December 11, 2013

marker“If I were recommending books to leftists, I’d recommend that they read their own progressive intellectual forebears first: Francis Galton on eugenics in Inquiries into Human Faculty and Its Development, John Dewey on The School and Social Progress, and the Rev. Robert Malthus’s An Essay on the Principle of Population. And given that modern progressivism’s current agenda is a combination of economic nationalism, collaborative public-sector/private-sector management of key economic sectors such as energy and health care, the creation of an elite technocratic class, and the restriction of democratic accountability in the name of greater governing efficacy, they should know that this has been tried before and was spelled out in some detail in a book called La dottrina del fascismo, written by Giovanni Gentile but attributed to Benito Mussolini.”
