Quotation of the Day…

in Country Problems

is from page 5 of the original 1951 University of Chicago Press edition of Michael Polanyi’s The Logic of Liberty:

Believing instead in what? – in the forces which were left for them to believe in – in Power, Economic Interest, Subconscious Desire…. Compassion was turned into merciless hatred and the desire for brotherhood into deadly class-war.
