Piquant excerpts lifted from Touchstone editors' own reading & listening.



Modern egalitarians, by failing to understand that there can be no equality except in the abstract and that inequality is the essence of the concrete, have merely displayed the extraordinary vulgarity of their minds as well as their amazing political clumsiness.

Julien Benda
The Treason of the Intellectuals (La Trahison des Clercs), ch. 3 (1927)
