Whittaker Chambers: The Spirit of a Counterrevolutionary

New Media  | 14 de mayo de 2010  | Vistas: 54

Richard M. Reinsch talks about the importance of the American journalist Whittaker Chambers, who, due to controversy, paved the way towards new ideas. Reinsch explains how Chambers was, at first, entirely committed to Communism but eventually became a blunt opponent. Through Chambers’ publication of his autobiography Witness, he discusses a form of revolutionary liberalism. This book also sheds light on Communism in a different way, and explores it in a very forthright manner. Reinsch also discusses the significance of Chambers’ philosophical, religious and literary contributions.
