The Origin of 21st Century Liberal Thought

Fred Siegel

“Taking its cue from Mencken, the liberalism that emerged from 1919 was contemptuous of American culture and politics. For the liberals, the war years had revealed that American society and democracy were themselves agents of repression. These sentiments deepened during the 1920s and have been an ongoing current in liberalism ever since.” The Revolt Against the Masses, copyright © 2013 by Fred Siegel, Encounter Books, Page 41.
