It is easy to be carried away by the sheer horror of what the daily press reveals and to lose sight of the fact that this is merely the brutal exterior of a deeper crime, of commitment to a social order that guarantees endless suffering and humiliation and denial of elementary human rights. It is tragic that the United States should have become, in [Arnold] Toynbee?s words, ?the leader of a world-wide anti-revolutionary movement in defense of vested interests.? For American intellectuals and for the schools, there is no more vital issue than this indescribable tragedy.
