Individual Dreams Mean Nothing…

… At least to Barack Obama.  From a December 8, 1995 article titled “What Makes Obama Run:”

In America,” Obama says, “we have this strong bias toward individual action.  You know, we idolize the John Wayne hero who comes in to correct things with both guns blazing.  But individual actions, individual dreams, are not sufficientWe must unite in collective action, build collective institutions and organizations.”

Obama sounds a lot like Marx, doesn’t he?

Hat tip to my co-worker PHP.
