The University Chronicle has been running a series of debates lately in the opinion page, and this week's is on gender pay equity
. Scott Bushee, one of the columnists debating, sent along a note to tell me that his opening quote from Marx was left out. Helping out students is my job, and so here's the quote that was omitted:
�The bourgeoisie cannot exist without constantly revolutionizing. . . all fixed, fast-frozen relations, with their train of ancient and venerable prejudices and opinions, are swept away.�
After reading this, I'm lead to read yet again Virginia Postrel's The Future and Its Enemies
. It seems that rather than conservative and liberal, the correct labels for Scott and Gordie are "dynamist" and "stasist".
