Quote of the Day

Fernando Enrique Cardoso, addressing Lula, in 1998:
We were taught, years ago, to expect there would be a tremendous crisis, the uprising of a new society, a new political system, and the working class taking power.

All that is gone. The Berlin Wall is gone. So is the Soviet Union. There is no historical alternative now. So if there is a crisis... after that there will only be disaster.
