No Return to the ‘Old Dispensation’

Written by Roger Cohen 7 May 2020

“The history of greed, venality, stupidity, cruelty and violence is long because that part of human nature is ineradicable. As the 20th century demonstrated, it is better to bet on a liberal society’s capacity to temper these flaws and iniquities than on a utopia’s false promise to eradicate them. Those promises end being written in blood” (Roger Cohen, 2020).
