Something for the Weekend

Never been a Trot: but this sums up America for me.

"It has never been easy for us Trotskyists to face, but it was America, dear, golden, childish America, that joined the narrative of personal ambition to the myth of a common consciousness, making a hymn, oh yes, to the future, the spirit, and the rolling land. It was all about hope"

From The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog, and of his friend Marilyn Monroe by Andrew O'Hagan
