How so?  If you are a Stalinist, it would clearly be the former.  If not, it would clearly be the latter.

Can't You see that this very posture of yours was what transformed something that should emancipate workers into something that oppressed them even more?

not so simple - a NATO-bound East Germany would have been both a symbolic and strategic disaster.

I believe the simple truth is that they became somewhat alarmed when they realized that I really meant to write what I believed. There is a peculiar parallel between some of our great Northern "liberals" and some of our outstanding Southern liberals.

Some of the people in both classes share the deep-seated convictions that only their convictions can possibly be the right ones. They both inevitably say the same thing: "We know the Negro and what is best for him."

"Supporting the protesters" would require the protests to have had definable recognized aims, which was not the case.
Joining the protests. That's something else. That's something I presumably would have done.
