I started rereading a biography of Bernard Shaw. Interesting that the socialists of the1880s were much like the progressives of today. They lectured everyone else, including each other, but they didn't seem to look beyond whatever the immediate crisis is. And the last thing they would think of doing is to try to figure out why "now" happened the way it did, so they could see what was going to happen if nobody listened to them.

I find that slightly disappointing because it would be interesting to talk to someone who had put in some time thinking about the future. Especially a future that wasn't just the present in funny hats.
