Lost Massey Lectures: Paul Goodman

I read 'The Moral Ambiguity of America' by Paul Goodman as part of 'The Lost Massey Lectures' series.

It's quite an interesting read and was struck by the parallels to contemporary America. Goodman seems to have been, in short, prescient. Goodman comes off more as a liberal - even libertarian - as in the classical vain than the current garden liberal variety or progressive. Which explains why his lecture wasn't nauseating.

You can listen to it here at the CBC.

I hope to get into more details later on.
