Can you tell me how it felt to be a Socialist in the '30s?
It felt good to be a Socialist in the '30s. I think it felt better than to be a member of any political party...we are now. [laughs] Because there was a feeling that things were possible, that you could make a difference, that you could change things, that people could work together, that there was good in every man, that we could be brothers. I think that a lot of it, at least for me, political theory wasn't so very important, but the feeling of people working together and caring about each other, and having a dream and a vision was important, and that I'm very glad I had.
