Erik Erickson from Red State has tracked down Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan’s college thesis paper. No surprise it is about socialism. I not surprised because it makes her another member of the administration who shows some love for this failed economic system, but also because you find tons of college students writing about this topic. Let’s face it, many of America’s college professors were radicals and if you want to impress them, you give them what they like.
Here is part of the closing paragraphs that many are latching on to:
"The story is a sad but also a chastening one for those who, more than half a century after socialism's decline, still wish to change America."
"Yet if 'the history of Local New York shows anything, it is·that American radicals cannot afford to become their own worst enemies. In unity lies their only hope."
The question today is does she still think fondly of socialism even though she knows its failures or was these just thoughts from a 20 year old college thesis? Hard to tell thus far and that is why Republicans need be thorough during the confirmation process.
You can read her whole thesis in PDF format here or you can trip over to Doug Ross for the highlights.
