Dalrymple: Turgenev and Marx

“Where Turgenev saw men, Marx saw classes of men; where Turgenev saw people, Marx saw the People. These two ways of looking at the world persist into our own time and profoundly affect, for better or worse, the solutions we propose to our social problems.”

– Theodore Dalrymple, Our Culture, What’s Left of It
