Liberals and the Marxist Heresy

Niebuhr, Reinhold
October 1953
New Republic;10/12/53, Vol. 129 Issue 11, p13
The article presents a discussion on the social conditions in the United States as of December 10, 1953. The spate of Congressional investigations aimed to ferret out remnants of disloyalty in the places like schools and colleges, churches, etc. manifest an old tension between the business community of the United States and the so called intellectuals. It is necessary for the sake of unity with the remainder of the free world, to resist unscrupulous efforts to obscure all shades and distinctions on the Left. The most obvious distinction in the interest of fairness is to note the rigorous resistance to Communism by Democratic Socialists in all nations.
