The Real Radicals
by

It is ironic to hear the Concerned Alumni of Princeton today in the Kultursmog described as “radical.” The organizations of the late 1960s and early 1970s that were described as radical were on the left and had the sympathies of liberals such as Senator Kennedy. What they did was more robust than anything the Concerned Alumni is accused of doing. They bombed buildings and robbed banks. In fact at Princeton they destroyed the ROTC Building, thus arousing the alarm of students such as Alito. Yet today his organization is being called radical in the media. And what are the left-wing bombers called, if they are remembered at all? Urban renewers?
