  • "Imperialism is not a vice practised by certain depraved characters, but the mode of operation that characterises economies that must keep expanding in order to survive. To blame Richard Nixon is weak-minded; to hope that a nice man from South Dakota will reverse the process is plumb crazy - but that is what I and thousands of other radic-libs did.

    - 'The Big Tease', Germaine Greer in Harper's Monthly Magazine, Oct 1972.
