The worst mistake progressives make
By Jonathan Wolfman
In the summer of 1980 I wrote a book, Survival & Renewal, for the World Fellowship Center in Conway, New Hampshire, in celebration of the leftist retreat's 50th anniversary.
I'd been a guest there before, taking in a wide variety of programs, political, cultural, artistic, economic, from many presenters from all over the United States and overseas. At any one time there were perhaps 300 at World Fellowship, a stimulating, vibrant place whose activities go beyond lectures and discussions in a rustic setting. There's boating and canoeing and swimming on and in magnificent Loon Lake; you can hike, play ball, make a clay pot or three, play pick-up basketball and most of all, just talk a summer away with bright, well-informed people, adults and kids.
