There have never been any “masses” in America: the poorest American is an
individual and, subconsciously, an individualist. Marxism, which has conquered
our universities, is a dismal failure as far as the people are concerned:
Americans cannot be sold on any sort of class war; American workers do not see
themselves as a “proletariat,” but are among the proudest of property owners.
It is professors and businessmen who advocate cooperation with Soviet
Russia—American labor unions do not.
