Christopher Hitchens Quote
“Every campaign, Garry Wills once wrote, taught Nixon the same lesson: mobilize resentment against those in power. History taught the same to many conservative and reactionary populist movements, whose real attitude to those in power and authority was one of a servile, envious, vicarious adoration.”
[Nixon: Maestro of Resentment (1990) - For the Sake of Argument: Essays and Minority Reports (1993)]
