The following is from C-SPAN2 BookTV's IN DEPTH interview of Alexander Cockburn by Connie Doebele
What does it mean to you to be a radical?
It means basically, initially challenging pretty much everything that's put before you in either audio or visual form or in literature or in journalism. Obviously, it has a social and political vision behind it. I mean radical is like one of these words like liberal, it's very hard to even get a fix on it anymore... Twenty years ago liberal meant something very different from what it does now, I think. Radical really means that you don't necessarily regard, in fact, you absolutely don't regard the Democratic Party as about as far left as you can go on the American political spectrum. It's seriously to the Left. --Alexander Cockburn of Counterpunch
