'• Leftists say they like little or nothing about the United States. They believe they know more about what is best for the nation than the overwhelming mass of people who oppose them. Despite their dislike of every thing "reactionary" they won’t live permanently in a nation whose government is like the one they wish to impose upon the United States. The main exception to this rule, of course, consists of those "American" Communists who visit Moscow to study sabotage, how to write letters to the editor, and espionage. The majority will tolerate its opponents as lohg as they ob serve the rules of the game and don't attempt to impose upon the majority.
