Recomand un articol scris de Paul Gottfried despre social-democratul Vladimir Tismaneanu si despre „dreapta” din jurul elitei noastre. E prima data cand conservatorii americani spun adevarul despre autointitulatii conservatori din jurul grupului Tismaneanu – Patapievici – Plesu.
A young Romanian friend, who is translating my work into his native language, recently sent me the latest book by Romanian social thinker and University of Maryland professor of government Vladimir Tismaneanu.
