Legendaran članak. Posebno mi se sviđa ovaj dio:

"All this is not to suggest that liberals like the Soviet system. Their attitude toward it is peculiar. They see it as a sort of death-god, a Moloch, that must be constantly appeased and propitiated, never angered. Moloch is beyond morality. He is a 'reality,' which it is not our place to censure. That only makes him mad. And a good roar from Moloch sends liberals scurrying, indignant not at him, of course, but at whoever 'provoked' him."

Još jedan odličan Sobranov članak (citat: "As I sometimes put it, the U.S. Constitution poses no serious threat to our form of government. "):

Koja šteta što je Sobran pred kraj života tako prolupao.
