How did liberals become so blinded by their idealism?
I love it. Good piece, I haven't thought about thus particular Moynihan commentary in long time. Perhaps the utopian view that most needs to be addressed, by the right at least, is the idea that the majority of political power shall reside at the federal level - this utopian view was born of the progressive era and locked into place in the FDR/Post WWII era. Perhaps we can turn from this utopian top down society and regain a federalist system of healthy differences and diffuse power.
It's likely our only hope.
