Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - October 20, 1970, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it pleasant news fair Section one 2 sections vol 97, no. 247 Jeffrey Hart intellectual fever Chart when read Leith care the report of the scr Runton. Commission on Campus unrest is rather better than one had expected it is relatively judicious and it has some Intel ent things to say. But in the end it is really irrelevant beside the Point not really in touch with the subject it purports to examine. The report utterly fails to take into account the conditions one almost wishes to say the temperature As in a fever cases of american intellectual culture at the present time. It is really a Philistine Effort Well intentioned but uncomprehending. It simply does not understand How it is among Many american intellectuals and it has no Concep Tina of the Springs of Campus feeling. The fact is and it is an important one that overt revolutionary rhetoric has become startlingly widespread. I do not mean the incredible by ovations of a figure like the revolutionary lawyer William Kunstler who shrieks to his audiences that blood must flow and that the time for guns is drawing near though Kunstler to be sure is not an inconsiderable figure on the Campus. And i do not refer to the assorted Calls for violence by Black militants and by figures like Bernardine Dohrn. Rhetoric of this sort is heard even credited Only because it has been prepared for by the More sober seeming revolutionary rhetoric of erstwhile establishment figures. Too take professor Hans Morgenthau for example. For the last ten years lie has been a scholarly presence holding Forth mainly at the University of Chicago but speaking widely elsewhere and producing a steady Stream of books and articles. He has been a Lucid yes an impressive writer opposed to the Vietnam War to be sure but on the whole judiciously and Well within the Bounds of responsible scholarship. But Morganthau apparently has succumbed to the malaise of our intellectual culture. In the current new York review of books in an extraordinarily murky article called a reflections on the end of the Republic a he Longs for the destruction of the Preer american system it a should by Rev have become obvious a he writes a that the great issues of our Day the militarization of american life the Vietnam War race conflicts poverty the decay of the cities the destruction of the natural environment Are not susceptible to rational solutions within the existing system of Power the indictment he offers is so comprehensive that strictly speaking no rejoinder is possible one either rejects it or acts upon it. And unfortunately Many Are emotionally sandbagged into acting upon it. Too the revolutionary position seeps out in slightly More guarded terms into the popular press. Tom Wicker for example in commenting on president Nixon a Kansas state University speech agreed with Nixon in deploring violence but he went on to equate the violence of the rioters and the revolutionaries with the violence of the police and the Vietnam War. And to impute inconsistency to Nixon for condemning one but not both for both Are but As everyone is aware the a a Force employed by legally constituted authority police or military is qualitatively different from the a a violence of groups operating outside the Law. A patrolman shooting a robber is not the same thing As a robber shooting a patrolman. What Wicker is attempting to do or Plain enough. Since the difference Between the two kinds of violence rests upon the Law Wicker. In equating them is de legitimating the Law. The Legal authority that sends them does not for Wicker make the acts of troops in Vietnam or the police at a riot qualitatively different from those of any criminal. Which is As much As saying constituted authority in America is criminal and Why did no to Nixon admit As much in his speech at Kansas state the Morganthau and the Wickers in fact Are legion. Beneath the Bland seemingly reasonable surfaces of their prose the theses Are revolutionary in fact no different in substance from the hysterical tirades of Kunstler Cleaver and Dohrn.
