Constructive and Destructive Radicals

November 1921
America;11/12/1921, Vol. 26 Issue 4, p83
The author reflects on constructive and destructive radicals. He defines destructive radicals or ultra-radicals as those belonging to the Bolshevik camp, and thrives in social unrest and the exploitation of man, especially the poor. On the contrary, he says that constructive radicals are those that uproot falsehood and abuses, as well as philosophers and inventors who pioneered in different fields of human endeavor. He also points to the middle ground of the Christian radicals who advocate the teachings of Christ as applied to all aspects of life.
