“Who in the contemporary political landscape still openly dreams of wiping the slate clean? of a radical new beginning? of history split in two? of society as a blank page upon which the poem of the New Man will be inscribed?  Europe has ended up aligning itself, in this matter, with realism, pragmatism, and, finally, American humility — and that is excellent news.”
