Michael Harrington
Life is lived in common, but not in community.
Harrington quotes
If there is technological advance without social advance, there is, almost automatically, an increase in human misery, in impoverishment.
Our affluent society contains those of talent and insight who are driven to prefer poverty, to choose it, rather than to submit to the desolation of an empty abundance. It is a strange part of the other America that one finds in the intellectual slums.

Harrington Michael quotes
Clothes make the poor invisible.... America has the best-dressed poverty the world has ever known.
