one respect we shall hope they will follow the example of the John Connallys: May the time of their return be less than two years from the time of their departure! But Don’s coalition needs more than a secretariat; it needs a complete new format. His notion that Lyndon Johnson has changed is also mistaken. Here’s how that situation really is: Will Rogers said Roosevelt’s most notable achievement during the Hundred Days was in moving the capital of the United States from New York to Washington. Roosevelt, that is, came out firmly for the separation of government from business. It is the function of modern democratic government to regulate the excesses and supplement the deficiencies of modern tech nology, while it provides a channel through which workable social invention can produce peaceful social change. Monolithic societies cannot cope with twentieth century realities so well as the pluralistic institutions which are distinctly American. What makes communism dangerous is the consolidation of economic and political power in the hands of one group of irresponsible leadersirresponsible in the sense that power cannot be taken from them by peaceful means. The peaceful transfer of political power after an American presidential election is a symbol of the adequacy of our system to the demands of the twentieth century. What made Mussolini’s corporative state and Hitler’s national socialist government inadequate was that citizens were supposed to function in a closed political system as members of occupational groups. In a democracy people vote where they live, free to follow their preferences as citizensnot as lawyers, or corporation executives, or government employees, or bankers, or union members. What makes the proud declaration, “I am a conservative,” a badge of political backwardness is that in the current political context it means, “I want the business community to dominate the government.” The well-intentioned “conservatives” who profess this philosophy really prefer to have the city council a department of the local chamber of commerce, the two houses of the state legislature respectful followers of the line laid down by the Third House, and the president of the United States the spokesman of organized American business. They want to move our capital back to New York. Historians and philosophers hardly ever get around to writing about a social theory until it has passed the peak of its importance as a social reality. Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations did not usher in the mercantile era: it described it. In Western society the key figure for the eighteenth century is the merchant; for the nineteenth century, the industrialist; for the twentieth, the politician. The present-day politician is the middleman in the marketplace of ideas. He is the broker for legitimate but partially conflicting interests. He helps bring social inventions to birth and makes them viable. Marx’s theory of economic determinism described some aspects of-the realities of his time. But it belongs to the nineteenth century, not the twentieth. Those who insist on embracing it in the 1960’s are not so much mistaken as outmoded. This stricture applies not only to communists, but also to directors of chambers of commerce who think in terms of business patronage. It applies with equal force to union officials who think in terms of achieving political power with an organization based on occupational interest, and to leaders of ethnic groups who think in terms of job patronage.
