Growing up Left

Filed under: Uncategorized — David Schaengold @ 11:19 am

During my childhood I never ate grapes except stealthily at friends’ houses, because Cesar Chavez had called for their boycott in 1984 (the boycott didn’t end until I was in high school). My parents never brought a soft drink into our home. So this guy’s fascinating tale of childhood leftism resonates with me. A crucial difference: my parents were proto-Crunchy Cons, so I got an equally intense dose of traditional moral philosophy.
