"I found most of the ideological leftists I knew to be cynics, from the
college classmate who espoused the revolution of the working class but
could be found in summer floating in the pool at his girlfriend's house
in Rosedale, to the Chilean Marxist who sponged constantly off his
wife's parents while fucking around on her at every opportunity. Reading
Hobsbawm made it easy for me to imagine how they could do it with a
smile on their face."
