One thought on “The New “Manichean” Left & the Old Far Right: Tolerating the Intolerable

  1. Another deeply perceptive and deeply disturbing analysis. Most of Mr. Cohen’s are such – I find I have to take a break in reading his articles to ward off despair. The 21st century will be the most challenging we have ever faced, many believe that for the first time in history, there will be fewer alive at the end of it than at the beginning. Many in the West, who may feel somewhat sanctimonious that we did not descend to the depths of Nazi Germany, and that such times are permanently in the past, will have their eyes opened as human nature takes over in the struggle, not for cultural values, but sheer survival.

    Keep thinking and writing the unthinkable, Mr. Cohen, for those of us who have the open eyes and strong stomachs for what you have to say.
