To Our Readers

The article presents response to the readers of the periodical "The New Republic" by explaining their editorial approach. It explains that the periodical takes no pride in being small but it declines to join the cult of size worshippers. It further explains that the aim of the periodical is to please only those whose pleasure lies in the joys of an open mind. It stands apart from the mass production of ideas. It would fear the liberal press once liberalism comes to mean a predictable reaction to all events, and a set of fixed ideas that were daring 40 years ago.
