Why the Left Hates Moderation

Peter, Robert
June 1981
National Review;6/26/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 12, p714
The article encourages the government of U.S. President Ronald Reagan to support moderate political elements in El Salvador led by General José Napoleón Duarte and the military junta. The U.S. government can not afford to be passive while the Soviet Union and the communists control central American countries, including El Salvador with its strong anti-democratic Leftist guerrillas. It is instructive that this guerrillas, when in power, will oust all democratic forces and will continue their terror acts.
