The Use of Politics

The recent flounderings of politicians have brought one inevitable result. As Labour have shown how impotent they are to control the anarchies of capitalism, and as the Tories have failed to convince with their policies, there is growing up an impatience with politics itself.

This is dangerous because the way out of society’s mess must be a political one. The trouble is not in politics but in the way we use it.
