I think it’s often assumed that the role of poetry is to comfort, but for me, poetry is the great unsettler. It questions the established order of the mind. It is radical, by which I don’t mean that it is either leftwing or rightwing, but that it works at the roots of thinking.
Alice Oswald
Part of the reason why I’m supporting Trump is that I think we need a more radical, new approach to government – at least in the U.S. – from what we’ve had before.

We are now living through peak stupid with the left, and this ‘toxic masculinity,’ ‘white patriarch’ nonsense, where they’ve now devolved to judging people exclusively by their gender and their skin color is a marker of the total intellectual collapse of the radical left.

NPR fired me for telling the truth. The truth is that I worry when I am getting on an airplane and see people dressed in garb that identifies them first and foremost as Muslims.

Alan Dershowitz
The best way of realising our high ideals is to show that we have an alternative in government that is credible, that is radical, and is electable – is neither a pale imitation of what the Tories offer nor is it the route to being a party of permanent protest rather than a party of government.
Gordon Brown
Democracy is still a radical idea in a world where we often confuse images with realities, words with actions.

Eavan Boland
You’ve seen it in the news – the radical left in our country, stinging from their 2016 election losses, has become increasingly desperate and unhinged. They want nothing more than to push their snowflake agenda on the entire nation, and our conservative Georgia values are under attack like never before.

Radical simply means ‘grasping things at the root.’
Angela Davis
Women are in positions of power the most radical of activists could only dream of in 1960.

Newt Gingrich
I always think that, for me, being someone who comes out of electric guitar experimentation, the idea of playing acoustic guitar is, in itself, kind of a radical move.
Lee Ranaldo
I was in Nicaragua with the Sandinistas. I’ve argued for Leonard Peltier, Mumia Abu-Jamal, the United Farm Workers. I’ve been a radical for a long time. I guess it’s too bad. I’d be more marketable as a right-wing redneck. But I got into this to tell the truth as I saw it.
Kris Kristofferson
The profusion of fonts is one more product of the digital revolution. Beginning in the mid-’80s and accelerating in the 1990s, type design weathered the sort of radical, technology-driven transformation that other creative industries, including music, publishing, and movies, now face.
Virginia Postrel
Wherever black people are in America, criminalization exists. Wherever there is a white-dominant space, deep racism exists as well – no matter how progressive. If you cut too far into that progressive, if you do something that’s too radical, white racism will emerge.
Patrisse Cullors
My mother saw nothing inconsistent in her traditional desire to look after her husband and children and her radical politics. She began her civil rights work before most people had ever heard the word ‘feminism,’ and in those early years, she was focused on racial justice.
Ezekiel Emanuel
I’m a radical environmentalist; I think the sooner we asphyxiate in our own filth, the better. The world will do better without us. Maybe some fuzzy animals will go with us, but there’ll be plenty of other animals, and they’ll be back.
Anthony Bourdain
There are too many people sympathetic to radical Islam. We should be looking at them more carefully and finding out how we can infiltrate them.

Jonathan Safran Foer
We’ve just learned how to balance ourselves a little better so that we’re happier way more of the time than not, and, you know, being happy is a radical and desirable act if you ask me.
Anthony Kiedis
We must not stop speaking the truth to the radical parties because voters will follow those who speak the truth, and European politics will grow more radical, which is in nobody’s interest.
Viktor Orban
Separation of Church and state was a radical idea when the U.S. was first founded, but it’s become The Way Things Are.
Judith Tarr
In politics, Joseph Smith was something of a radical. He preached, instead of democracy, a version of theocratic rule within a framework given by his own prophetic leadership. At Nauvoo, Smith affected a Napoleonic uniform and made himself into a general and quasi king of the polity he had constituted.
Noah Feldman
Harvard prides itself on its diversity – economic, racial, social, geographical – but it remains intellectually segregated. It’s not what conservative commentators seem to imagine – a bastion of liberal professors force-feeding radical opinions to a naive student body.
Alexandra Petri
It’s not a radical statement: all of us should agree that we want to make sure that weapons stay out of the hands of people that could use them to hurt others, especially after the tragedies we’ve seen in Charleston, Newtown, Wilkinsburg and too many other communities.
John Fetterman
The radical novelty of modern science lies precisely in the rejection of the belief… that the forces which move the stars and atoms are contingent upon the preferences of the human heart.

It is my Middle Eastern hat and my attachment to Israel that ultimately inspires my support for Obama. I know he understands that neither Israel nor America can afford four more years of Iran and the radical Islamists gaining strategic leverage in the Middle East.
Dennis Ross
It’s hardly a radical idea to suggest that regulators and legislators understand the law now, is it?
Nigel Farage

Ben Hopkins
Progressive, radical, or even revolutionary change has always come from below.
Tom Morello
Tired of nagging your kids to hurry up, get dressed, drink their milk and brush their teeth? Here’s a radical idea: Don’t.
Bruce Feiler
I feel that Julian Assange came to be both paranoid and self-regarding in ways that ultimately undermined his own mission. And so, the transparency radical became a secret-keeper instead of a secret-leaker. And that, I think, is a big problem.
Alex Gibney
We need to recognize the reality of the threat from radical Islam: that it will be an enduring conflict, that there are no easy decisions, and that mistakes have and will be made.
Pete Hoekstra
We do not need more federal government overreach and control of our land and water, and I will always fight to protect private property, preserve local control, and defend the economy from radical legislation.
Lauren Boebert
If I say most people are pretty decent that may sound nice and warm but actually it’s really radical and subversive and that’s why, all throughout history, those who have advocated a more hopeful view of human nature – often the anarchists – have been persecuted.
Rutger Bregman
Radical politics tend to be simple minded.
Israel Horovitz
If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 60 years ago, a liberal 30 years ago and a racist today.

Pete Hoekstra
If we do not elect a national legislature that will hold Obama accountable, he and his radical cohorts will destroy the tree of liberty. Just mark my words.

Sally Quinn
While there are many moderate Muslims, Islam’s political ideology is radical and has global ambitions.
Geert Wilders
To the indefinite, uncertain mind of the American radical the most contradictory ideas and methods are possible. The result is a sad chaos in the radical movement, a sort of intellectual hash, which has neither taste nor character.
Emma Goldman
I want to be radical on the inside, but not on the outside.
Jeremy Piven
The radical elements in Islam are very dangerous.
Brent Scowcroft
Some of the most radical work is being done in the most commercially pop venues, and some of the most boring work is being done in avant-garde territory.
Harmony Korine
Fighting the Taliban and the various radical organizations on the front lines is like adding a Band-Aid to a cut, it may stop the bleeding but unless you clean it with antiseptic, the germs stay and multiply.
Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy
People don’t want to think… I mean, they don’t! They just want to say, ‘Oh, okay, feminists are humorless man-haters,’ and that’s simply not the case. There are radical people and radical ideas in absolutely every movement, but that doesn’t mean they define the ideals.
Roxane Gay
If we do not counter the argument that most radical nationlists use, which is, ‘To protect is to be protectionist,’ if we don’t counter that argument, all of our economies will suffer.
Frans Timmermans
If you want to write something of length, however modern and radical, you must live the life of an elderly gentleman of the 1950s.
Arthur Smith
If anything, the Democrats’ salvation may lie in the fact that Republicans seem even more hell-bent on allowing their radical wing to drag the party away from the center.
William M. Daley

Gaspar Noe
The threat from radical Islamic jihadists is real and needs to be taken seriously.
Doug Ducey
In your twenties, you might want to be radical and change the world, but in your thirties, you might just want to be happy and ground yourself.

Ernst Zundel

Ellen Key
Hillary Clinton’s radical attempts at so-called reform of the nation’s health care system would have been more destructive than even Obamacare has been.
Asa Hutchinson
The Obama-Clinton administration gambled with America’s national security by embracing radical jihadists, and the world lost.
Pete Hoekstra
I don’t believe – till something radical changes that we are not on track to do – that hybrids are material to climate change. They’re fashionable, everybody loves them, the Prius is selling well, but so are Gucci bags. But they don’t impact the way the world carries stuff. You know it’s a fashion statement.
Vinod Khosla
We need radical, transformative solutions to address the inequality that is blighting millions of people’s lives.
Angela Rayner
When I look at Washington today, we need to bring us together. We need to solve problems, we need to rebuild our military so we can stand up to radical Islam, we need to get our economy growing much faster by throwing out the corrupt tax code and lowering the rates.
George Pataki
With the development of industrial capitalism, a new and unanticipated system of injustice, it is libertarian socialism that has preserved and extended the radical humanist message of the Enlightenment and the classical liberal ideals that were perverted into an ideology to sustain the emerging social order.
Noam Chomsky
I believe I have a calling. Do you know what that calling is? To stand up in a new and hard core, radical way for the Lord. In the process, if I insult a couple of people, if I offend a couple of people, and if I got to shake it up a little bit, as long as it is led by the Holy Spirit, amen.
Stephen Baldwin
If being an advocate of peace, justice, and humanity toward all human beings is radical, then I’m glad to be called radical. And if it is radical to oppose the use of 70 percent of federal monies for destruction and war, then I am a radical.
Ron Dellums
Stacey Abrams – very articulate, very smart, but she just has radical views on wanting to grow government, raising taxes, trying to have these big government policies that didn’t work in the Barack Obama administration.
Brian Kemp
We who don’t want radical Islam to spread must compete with the agents of radical Islam. I want to see what would happen if Christians, feminists and Enlightenment thinkers were to start proselytizing in the Muslim community.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Jazz in the 1920s and ’30s was dance music, teenage music for parties, for being wild and young. There’s this punk feeling I really love. It was something so radical and different and new and not codified. People didn’t have a definition of what they were doing.
Cecile McLorin Salvant
I like silence. Aesthetically, I feel strangled by the fast cutting and a wall of sound. And I think showing black people thinking onscreen is radical.
Ava DuVernay
Stephen Baldwin believes that now we’re in a particular time in the world’s history where it is time that people stand up for Jesus. That people get more aggressive and radical how they communicate with our culture about Jesus.
Stephen Baldwin
We weren’t radical chic. Jane Fonda embarrassed me. We belonged to no political parties. Basically, we were vaudevillians.
Tom Smothers

The radical Left loves attacking people as anti-science when anyone dares question their computer models on global warming.

Brad Thor
Joe Biden and the radical, anti-gun Democrats want to unleash the ATF on law-abiding gun owners across America, attacking our God-given Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
Marjorie Taylor Greene

Bob Beauprez
A genuine man goes to the roots. To be a radical is no more than that: to go to the roots.

I, and many constituents of TX-13, have had enough of cancel culture and its intent to destroy anyone who does not agree with Democrats’ radical, woke agenda.
Ronny Jackson

Diane Ackerman
I believe we are nearing a time when a combination of technology and radical thinking will make it possible for much more intensive and restrictive conditions to be applied in more creative and fundamental ways outside of prison.

True enough, the Fed needs radical reforms. In particular, it needs to replace its failed forecasting models and be rid of the academics who overwhelm the Fed system.
Lawrence Kudlow
One of the reasons MSNBC is plummeting is that I, not long ago, refused to play any content from them. I figured, why? I mean, it’s genuine depraved partisan politics insanity, genuine extremist radical ignoramuses on that network.
Rush Limbaugh
I say to Americans who love our country – young and old – be a radical for freedom. Be a radical for liberty. Be a radical for our republic. For which I stand.
Madison Cawthorn
I think that haredi children should study the core subjects and that their parents must work, and I believe that there are many haredim who think like me and would be glad to discover that someone is fighting the radical functionaries and rabbis who embitter their lives.
Yair Lapid
An important consequence of freeing oneself from the fear of death is a radical opening to spirituality of a universal and non-denominational type.
Stanislav Grof
In the sixties, for anybody to suggest that the government didn’t have our best interests at heart and policemen sometimes killed people would have automatically made them a radical firebrand lefty. That’s not the case anymore.
Alan Moore
Government must become lean and efficient and customer friendly. It must begin to pay its bills. Liberals believe this is radical and cruel. The rest of us think it is common sense.
Stephen Moore
I would say that I have become more radical as I have gotten older. I started out very radical when I was young, like most people, but I became less actively politically engaged in the middle of my life.
Tony Judt
By ‘radical,’ I understand one who goes too far; by ‘conservative’, one who does not go far enough; by ‘reactionary’, one who won’t go at all.
Woodrow Wilson
Radical Islamic jihadists have a long-term vision. And if they have to stay in Europe to obtain a citizenship, to ultimately travel to the United States, and if it takes them five years or ten years, they’re okay with that. History has proven that.
Jeff Duncan
Barack Obama is a radical, and we should not be afraid to say that.
Andrew Breitbart
Radical constructivism, thus, is radical because it breaks with convention and develops a theory of knowledge in which knowledge does not reflect an ‘objective’ ontological reality.
Paul Watzlawick
The United States and Russia probably do not have common aims and dreams, but they have common worries: Both Washington and Moscow are concerned about the rise of China and are threatened by the rise of radical Islam.
Ivan Krastev
For the first time in human history, there seems to be a radical increase in the proportion reaching principled morality.
Lawrence Kohlberg
In Madrid I lived quietly and then Lisbon cost me more. Language was a subject and adaptation was slow, but getting to Wolverhampton was radical. It gave me peace of mind. There I can go as if nothing to make my life. People approach, with respect, to tell me that they are happy with me.
Raul Jimenez
Rather than embracing mainstream, majority-held positions, 2020 Democratic presidential candidates have made it exceedingly clear that they will sacrifice themselves on the altar of the radical left – endorsing positions held by a select few and fueling an unstoppable tailwind behind President Trump’s reelection.
Kayleigh McEnany
There is nothing radical about Obama except the fact of who he is.
Tina Brown
For him to have understood me would have meant reorganizing his thinking… giving up his intellectual ballast, and few people are willing to risk such a radical move.
Edward T. Hall
I understand that a lot of people can’t connect with my music, because it’s a radical proposal and a personal proposal. There will be people who can connect with it, and many that can’t.
I always wished I could move around and switch schools. It was hard to have these radical transformations. You’d think, ‘I will be a totally different person tomorrow,’ but it never worked.
Sarah Dessen
There is an urgent need for a radical revision of our current concepts of the nature of consciousness and its relationship to matter and the brain.
Stanislav Grof
It’s interesting how people who were once fairly radical can become, later in life, kind of conservative, and not just in terms of politics – how, if you’re an artist, you can start out being somewhat avant-garde and then end up doing landscapes.
Richard Prince
I think the most radical thing you can do is be yourself.
When Democrats are proposing things like a Green New Deal and Medicare for all and proposing that they take away your private insurance… it’s very obvious to people that they’ve gone in a radical direction that will not work.
Dan Crenshaw
A militant’s profile lies not in his age, race, culture, or education; anyone can join or be adopted by the al Qaeda network, the only prerequisite being a willingness to accept the group’s radical, cultlike ideology.
Malcolm Nance
What the Khmer Rouge had in store was a radical agrarian revolution, one with the professed aim of completely renovating society while giving the peasants a better life, of evening the rewards and feeding the hungry, of bringing a rational and utilitarian nation-state into being.
Michael Paterniti
Radical feminists are often highly conservative in many areas except for women’s rights, and LGBT activists can be the same.
Andreja Pejic
People often say that a bad event is a ‘blessing in disguise.’ Trust me, experience will teach you that some are unbelievably well disguised. Everyone gets fired, or decides to make a radical change at some point. Everyone suffers setbacks.
Tom Freston
The conservative who resists change is as valuable as the radical who proposes it.
Ariel Durant
Despite a few really bad days we had quite a lot of fun making Low, especially when all the radical ideas were making sense and things were starting to click.
Tony Visconti
In the radical Islamist jihad world, you’re seeing more and more recruits going to ISIS rather than al-Qaida.
Michael McCaul
I am delighted to be at the heart of this team of radical reformers in Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, Nick Boles and many others. It’s a team I believe will deliver the change Britain needs.
Liz Truss
We must make a radical turn, at 360 degrees.
Todor Zhivkov
I was influenced very much by St. Francis of Assisi, whose idea was to radically live the gospel. He was not a priest, or even a brother. He was a layperson. His whole concept was to emulate Christ through the gospels, and to live it in a radical way.
Tom Catena
Mainly, I’m doing my thing, and I hope people like it. I don’t say, ‘I’m going to write something radical and hope it reverberates throughout society.’ The goal is to write a solid, entertaining, engaging show.
Jenji Kohan
I grew up in a culturally radical home, where strong emotions were forbidden.
Lars von Trier
When you are right you cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
The West needs leaders with the courage and the will to fight the scourge of radical Islam.
Pete Hoekstra
We cannot be complacent about the determination of radical Islamic extremists to destroy our freedoms.
Matt Bevin
BDS is not a typical act of political correctness, undertaken by radical academics whose usual prey is the youth of America. This is a worldwide movement designed to destroy the one democracy in the Middle East and the hopes of people who have occupied that land for over three thousand years.
Thom Tillis
I think, the world over, new ideas have come from young people. I’m not saying it doesn’t happen, but it is rare that new or radical ideas come from old people.
Farhan Akhtar
Statements in support of radical terror organizations have become the norm for certain left wing members of Congress.
Madison Cawthorn
I’m a radical, and I always have been.
Mort Sahl
The forces that led to radical Islam, the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda, Islamic State, can ultimately only be defeated by moderate Muslims around the globe, countries like U.A.E. that have led the fight within their own border to promote tolerance.
Tom Cotton
As someone who grew up between two cultures, I have been fascinated with the question of why men and women with similar backgrounds to mine were drawn towards radical messages of hate and violence.
Deeyah Khan
Our Prophet was a radical too- he fought against the injustices of his community and challenged the feudal order of his society, so they called him a radical. So what? We should be proud of that!
Abu Bakar Bashir
Unlike other Taliban groups, the Haqqanis’ approach to mayhem was worldly and sophisticated: they recruited Arabs, Pakistanis, even Europeans, and they were influenced by the latest in radical Islamist thought.
Anand Gopal
Obedience is detachment from the self. This is the most radical detachment of all. But what is the self? The self is the principle of reason and responsibility in us. It is the root of freedom, it is what makes us men.
Bede Griffiths
I tend not to believe radical Muslim movements.
Ehud Barak
I didn’t see myself as a woman doing film but as a radical film-maker who was a woman.
Agnes Varda
Close to 80 percent of all terrorist activity in Samaria was directed and financed either by Hizbullah or the Iranians. Iran continues to increase its involvement in terror attacks inside Israel, particularly through a small but radical minority of Israeli Arabs which Iran supports and directs.
Ariel Sharon
Our actions in the Middle East over the last 15 years have already guaranteed radical Muslims quite enough ammunition to kill Americans for the next century, even if Guantanamo did not exist.
Nick Clooney
Martin Luther King Jr. was not just a man of peace. He was a radical pacifist, and so he was against war across the board.
Cornel West
New York is this cacophony – a collection of radical differences, an agreement of non sequiturs. The diversity and intensity are startling.
Thom Mayne
I consider myself not a conservative libertarian but a radical ’60s libertarian.
Camille Paglia
This country has always been run by elite, and it’s an elitist democracy. And that’s not a radical concept. It’s elitist democracy. When people talk about democracy, they don’t talk – really talk about participatory democracy, until the point that we get us at Election Day.
Danny Glover
As you can imagine I’m disappointed as anything that I was not selected to be the presidential running mate. And I find it continually appalling that it would be a radical thing to have a woman on the ticket.
Kate Clinton
I’m not radical.
Jack Kevorkian
We began as restless and radical. Remember the spirit of 1997, but by the end of our time in office we had lost our way.
Ed Miliband
If Republicans are defeated in 2008, God help us all because Radical Islamic fascists will do anything by any means necessary to rid the world of the ‘infidels’: the enemy. In their eyes, that is America.
Angela McGlowan
As I look into the future, I see radical changes in both how people ‘attain beauty,’ and how the world perceives beauty. In general, I believe traditional beauty will be less valuable – and more uniqueness will be heralded.
Tyra Banks
The Wahhabi movement is a form of radical Islam that people here say did not exist before in Bosnia, where Islam had co-existed with other major religions and was much softer and more liberal.
Jasmila Zbanic
What people forget is that the most radical thing about Obama is that he was the first black man in history to imagine that he could become president, who was able to make other Americans believe it as well. Other than that, he is a centrist, just like I try to be. He’s been bridging divisions his whole life.
Henry Louis Gates
I want to do just, like, regular art. Whatever is made today on canvas goes up against all of art history. It’s the most radical thing.
Barry McGee
God as ‘He,’ as a patriarchal thing, is offensive to me. It’s standard fare for America, ‘He, He, He.’ Every time I hear that it’s like another blow against females. It’s very radical talk at this point for females to say this kind of stuff, but nationwide I still hear females referring to God as ‘He.’
Patty Griffin
I don’t think that the Iranians, even if they got the bomb, they’re going to drop it immediately on some neighbor. They fully understand what might follow. They’re radical, but not total mishuginas.
Ehud Barak
If I ever called myself an activist, I regret it, and I was cornered into it by an industry who couldn’t justify me taking up space without saying that I had some kind of radical political agenda because they saw my participation as a radical political thing. Which it was not.
Hari Nef
Young people, some of whom are not born into the faith, are being fired up by preachers using basic Islamic scripture and mobilized to wage jihad by radical imams who represent themselves as legitimate Muslim clergymen.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Women tend to be conservative in youth and get more radical as they get older because they lose power with age. So if a young woman is not a feminist, I say, ‘Just wait.’
Gloria Steinem
Hats are radical; only people that wear hats understand that.
Philip Treacy
ISIS and radical Islam have declared war on us not because of anything we have done – not because we are a friend to Israel and not because we have not yet toppled the bloody Syrian dictator Assad. ISIS and radical Islamists hate us for who we are. The irony is, we ourselves do not know who we are.
Tom Tancredo
I started the label Tzadik to support an entire community of musicians, not just Jewish musicians. But the radical Jewish culture movement was begun in a lot of ways because I wanted to take the idea that Jewish music equals ‘klezmer’ and expand it to, ‘Well, Jewish music could be a lot more than that.’
John Zorn
Obama’s ascendancy unhinged the radical right, offering a unified target to competing camps of racial, nativist and religious animus.
Barton Gellman
The Arab Spring, nobody’s in the streets demonstrating for radical Islam; they’re in the streets with a window of democracy. They want our political reform, our social justice, and our economic opportunity.
Jack Keane
In 1861, Bachofen published his radical thesis that the Amazons were not a myth but a fact. In his view, humanity started out under the rule of womankind and only switched to patriarchy at the dawn of civilization.
Amanda Foreman
Radical Islamist extremists surely hope that an attack on Iraq will kill many people and destroy much of the country, providing recruits for terrorist actions.
Noam Chomsky
I can’t tell you the number of times in high school I was allowed to be disappointed for not making the grade; it’s a part of life. So the young students who are being taught by radical leftists in this country today are going to end up growing up in a world for which they are totally unprepared and unequipped.
Rush Limbaugh
When I was in my teens and twenties, I could see friends expressing how radical they were, and I envied them, the way they lived, the way they dressed. Maybe there is a part of me that is reserved, even in rebellion.
Susan Minot
I don’t consider myself a ‘radical.’ Radical in American society has, I think, become this buzzword that makes a lot of ideas and discussions seem foreign or new to people – whether for or against them. Is it radical to seek justice? Is it radical to be rescued by love? Is it subversive to be sweet?
Chelsea Manning
I’m as radical as libertarians come.
L. Neil Smith
The truth is that while those on the left – particularly the far left – claim to be tolerant and welcoming of diversity, in reality many are quite intolerant of anyone not embracing their radical views.
Charlie Kirk
The U.S. healthcare industry is undergoing radical transformation with the Affordable Care Act. Evolving thought and business models have little semblance to present mechanisms.
Shiv Nadar
I think it is time for a radical federalism in this country, where people trust innovation coming from the local level and ramp that up.
Eric Garcetti
I use some pretty radical harmonics at the beginning of ‘Heresy.’
Dimebag Darrell
The Torah is the foundational text for Jewish law, but the Haggadah is our book of living memory. We are not merely telling a story here. We are being called to a radical act of empathy. Here we are, embarking on an ancient, perennial attempt to give human lives – our lives – dignity.
Jonathan Safran Foer
The most radical revolutionary will become a conservative the day after the revolution.
Hannah Arendt
I have a political view that is certainly progressive and radical in a certain sense.
Susan Rosenberg
The war against radical Salafi-Jihadism has been going on for several decades already and it will span many more and the U.S. must be preparing mentally for it.
Will Hurd
Like most kids, I grew up singing ‘This Land Is Your Land’ in grammar school, but with the most radical verses neatly removed. This was before I knew it was a Woody Guthrie song.
Steve Earle
Obama’s most radical goal has not been the transformation of our economy, our foreign policy, or our place in the world. Obama aims to transform what it means to be an American.
Tom Tancredo
I never dared to be radical when young for fear it would make me conservative when old.
Robert Frost
I am trying to do two things: dare to be a radical and not a fool, which is a matter of no small difficulty.
James A. Garfield
I’ve been politically radical my whole life, so when the left attacks, that hurts more.
Moshe Kasher
The national coronavirus response has been a radical experiment on the American people that destroyed our economy and harmed our liberty.
Tom Fitton
The opportunities which the present position open up for a lasting and radical solution of the most vexing problem of the Jewish state are so far-reaching as to take one’s breath away.
Moshe Sharett
Whether it’s people walking off ‘The View’ when Bill O’Reilly makes a statement about radical Islam or Juan Williams being fired for expressing his opinion, over-reaching political correctness is chipping away at the fundamental American freedoms of speech and expression.
Eric Cantor
If you’re sick, you should be able to see a doctor. And if you’re seen, you should be able to afford the bill and your medicine without going broke. There is absolutely nothing radical about this.
Eric Swalwell
I’m not a politically radical person. In fact, I’m much more interested in being radical aesthetically.
Jim Goldberg
I’m not surprised ‘The Avengers’ has such enduring popularity, because it was a groundbreaking series that changed television. It was the first show that put its leading man and leading lady on an equal footing and showed a woman fighting and kicking and throwing men around. That was a radical departure in its time.
Patrick Macnee
Before turning 32 is an amazing time to do radical things. You figure out who you are while you figure out who you are not.
Kelly Cutrone
It is ironic that so many politicians claim to defend traditional Christian values of ‘faith and family.’ In fact, a radical antifamily ideology permeates Christ’s teaching, and the early Christian tradition often set faith and family against each other.
Stephanie Coontz
My family wasn’t particularly political. Mom and Dad voted, but that was the extent of their involvement. In fact, I ended up going to U.C. Davis because, to them, Berkeley was too radical.
Jackie Speier
Arguably, the first five years of ‘Saturday Night Live’ were some of the most radical things ever seen on television. When NBC said, ‘Okay, you can do a show from 11:30 to 1 on Saturday night,’ they didn’t think anyone would watch. It was like giving a piece of the candy store to the kids.
Richard Belzer
The music that I will continue to make will certainly draw upon those experiences of being a loner, of being an emo goth kid, of being a New York City aficionado, of being a witch, a feminist, a brown radical woman.
Princess Nokia
I don’t think it’s an incredibly radical premise to try and have sympathy for someone who has made a mistake.
Joe Cornish
How people watch and the different ways they connect to TV – you’re going to see some expansion and radical transformation.
Kevin Reilly
If Obama wanted to make radical changes to America’s health long-term, all he has to do is treble the price of sugar and salt.
Jamie Oliver
My mother didn’t want me to be a feminist, a radical, political person, because she was scared. She wanted me to be protected and safe, but my life never was.
Isabel Allende
For the entire four years of the greatest Presidential term of our lifetime, Democrats led by Speaker Pelosi and radical Socialists in her party attempted coup after coup against President Donald Trump.
Marjorie Taylor Greene
Around the time I began starving, in the early eighties, the visual image had begun to supplant text as culture’s primary mode of communication, a radical change because images work so differently than words: They’re immediate, they hit you at levels way beneath intellect, they come fast and furious.
Caroline Knapp
And that Newman wasn’t, and yet to me Pollock is just as radical and unlike Expressionism as Newman.
Donald Judd
June Jordan, who died of cancer in 2002, was a brilliant, fierce, radical, and frequently furious poet. We were friends for thirty years. Not once in that time did she step back from what was transpiring politically and morally in the world. She spoke up, and led her students, whom she adored, to do the same.
Alice Walker
You can write a radical Norwegian or a conservative Norwegian. And when I changed to a conservative Norwegian, I gained this distance or objectivity in the language. The gap released something in me, and in the writing, which made it possible for the protagonist to think thoughts I had never myself thought.
Karl Ove Knausgard
Getting rid of all the world records would be a bit of a radical move.
Katarina Johnson-Thompson
We need to make sure these Islamic terrorist organizations don’t become mainstream. We’re fighting an ideology as much as a group of radical terrorists.
Ryan Zinke
Radical Islamic fundamentalists harbor contempt for our democratic way of life and, given the opportunity, will stop at nothing to accomplish their goal of bringing our country to its knees.
Paul Weyrich
I went to theater school at Northwestern, and I was quite conservative. Reagan at the time seemed quite revolutionary, or at least a rock star: He was radical and kind of punk rock.
John Cameron Mitchell
When you are younger and more radical, the police seem like the enemy.
Adrian Dunbar
Practically the only way to dry the swamp of radical Islam is through economic development and an improved standard of living.
Yitzhak Rabin
For many young men, joining in a radical movement is a way of feeling powerful, which is particularly intoxicating for men who feel their masculinity has been called into question, whether through victimisation or a failure to achieve the status that they feel they are entitled to.
Deeyah Khan
America and its allies are engaged in a war against a terrorist movement that spans all corners of the globe. It is sparked by radical ideologues that breed hatred, oppression, and violence against all of their declared enemies.
Kenny Marchant
The threat from radical Islam is real.
Darryl Glenn
The State of the Union may look rosy from the White House balcony or the suites of George Bush’s wealthiest donors. But hardworking Americans will see through this president’s efforts to wrap his radical agenda with a compassionate ribbon.
Howard Dean
Every second, every hour, and every day we can stop radical Democrat policies, Republicans should do it.
Marjorie Taylor Greene
Change does not come easily to our party, in spite of its roots in our country’s radical tradition.
Wes Streeting
Radical multicultural types will, in the end, destroy the things they claim to like, because they don’t understand that liberty and reasonable equality are features of stable, free, conservative societies based on Christian ideas, which guard their borders and are proud of their civilisation.
Peter Hitchens
You can’t win for losing. Either you fulfill their stereotype of being a radical 60’s person or you’ve sold out. In fact, of course, millions of people who were active in the 60’s are doing work on issues that try to reflect their values.
Bernadine Dohrn
No Christian can be a pessimist, for Christianity is a system of radical optimism.
William Inge
My family taught me radical politics from the beginning, but I also learned to prove myself in elite institutions.
Chesa Boudin
When I was writing ‘The Satanic Verses,’ if you had asked me about the phenomenon that we all now know as radical Islam, I wouldn’t have had much to say. As recently as the mid-1980s, it didn’t seem to be a big deal.
Salman Rushdie
If you start thinking of stress as not a bad thing but inevitable, resulting in change that itself leads to transformation that leads to sharp and radical changes… it can be a very useful way of thinking.
Marilyn Ferguson
I’ve caught myself watching MSNBC more and more, simply amazed at the nightly hate-fest against millions of Americans who don’t see the world through the granny glasses of Keith Olbermann or any of the other radical liberals who host shows there.
Mike Gallagher
Investing in women and girls may once have been considered a radical notion or even a waste of resources, but in most places in the world today, women and girls are increasingly recognized as a critical link to greater prosperity, political stability, better health and public policy.
Pat Mitchell
Syriza is what it is: a radical, left-wing party that feels the pulse of the times, knows what’s at stake, and is after a wide consensus and unity for political change in Greece. This is something that departs from the narrow limits of the radical left.
Alexis Tsipras
I am what would be called a ‘mainstream feminist,’ not a radical feminist.
Joyce Carol Oates
There must be something in the water in Minnesota because historically, despite its seemingly homogeneous population, the state has produced some of our more radical political thinkers, and its people have put their prejudices aside to vote for them.
Keith Ellison
I went over to say hi to Rob and he introduced me to Wayne and Fred. I had made a radical purchase of some brown Beatle boots. Wayne was like ‘Where did you get those boots! Who is this guy?
Michael Davis
Radical changes will come to the Netherlands. We stand for fundamental choices, and we need to make the right ones.
Mark Rutte
Our ideals are under the constant threat of extremism, whether in the form of radical Muslim groups or the emergence of other elements seeking to deny the rights and freedoms of others.
Reuven Rivlin
I don’t like to make strong statements. I want to write strong novels… I keep my deep, radical things for my novels.
Orhan Pamuk
Who do you want to be: the radical man who can make a choice in one second, or the man who never takes decisions? That’s the question: who’s the best? Actually, there is no best.
But the threat posed by the radical Islamists represents an unusual conflict, unlike any experienced by our nation before: we face an enemy that is not a state.
Paul Weyrich
In our lifetime, we’re going to see fifty percent of the world’s species go extinct. We’re already seeing this radical rise in the world’s temperature that was predicted.
Yes, Gaddafi was a ruthless dictator and supporter of terrorism during his 40-year reign in Libya, but he had become an ally of the United States in the fight against radical jihadism after 9/11.
Pete Hoekstra
I just can’t imagine anyone in the United States military who would not understand the distinction between a jihadist and a radical Islamist and Muslims. I think that is snobbery from elitists. It goes to the issue, it seems to me, of an orthodoxy, a political correctness that has infiltrated the U.S. Army.
Lou Dobbs
The cornerstone of the political correctness that dominates campus culture is radical feminism.
Phyllis Schlafly
There is a group of individuals who are radical jihadists. We need to call them by name. They believe it is OK to kill people in the name of their religion. It is not all of Islam. It is not all Muslims. But there is a subgroup who believe it is OK. In fact, it is their plan and design to kill people.
Tim Pawlenty
It is clear that the radical left has taken over the Democratic Party, leaving behind the party of John F. Kennedy.
Kayleigh McEnany
The IMF played crucial roles in the 1980s debt crisis and in the transformation of former communist economies. Radical change, many might argue, is neither necessary nor desirable.
Zanny Minton Beddoes
And I believe only with a strong America will we defeat this radical group, this apocalyptic group called ISIS. That’s why when I’m president we are going to rebuild our intelligence capabilities. And they’re going to tell us where the terrorists are. And a rebuilt U.S. military is going to destroy these terrorists.
Marco Rubio
On everything from climate change to the housing crisis, we need solutions that are credible, bold and radical.
Clive Lewis
I am much more radical in my beliefs than my products represent me to be.
Isabella Rossellini
I personally don’t feel the need to be radical for its own sake, but I probably couldn’t if I tried anyway.
Jesse Eisenberg
From the moments Obama took office, he has downplayed the threats from radical Islamists.
Richard Grenell
Many writers are radical. I am not, because of my age and because of my terrible fear of demagogy.
Heinrich Boll
Call me radical, but I’ve always thought there are at least two subjects on which journalists are absolutely entitled to express public opinions: freedom of expression, and attacks on journalists.
Neil Macdonald
There are many nice, peaceful Muslims, but the Netherlands is far too tolerant regarding the statements of the radical wing of Islam.
Els Borst
Working-class Americans want a clear champion, and there is nothing radical about moral clarity in 2018.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
There needs to be radical development in equality law to create the environment to allow women to stay in work.
Ken Livingstone
When I don’t wear makeup, it’s not because I’m lazy, but it’s me making this radical bid for the feminization of my body and being confident in that.
Hari Nef
The good thing about people who are corporate is that they’re stupid. So they can be touching something that’s precious or radical or special, and they miss the point completely.
Genesis P-Orridge
I’m a huge Nagisa Oshima fan. He was one of the most radical Japanese directors to come up in the ’60s.
Richard Linklater
When I was 13, I did become a Christian. And so it was when I was 13, that I thought… I just… I really saw a good example in Jesus and how he was just so… such a tremendous radical love and service of the poor. I just thought, ‘Man, why can’t we all do the same?’
Hugh Evans
I did a TV show called ‘Unit 1.’ It wasn’t a bad experience, but yes, the first season I didn’t have a good time because I was coming from Nicolas Winding Refn films where the corners were sharp and radical, but now we had round corners.
Mads Mikkelsen
We’ve got tremendous equity in cow spots and in the name Gateway, so this isn’t anything radical, but you’ll see us getting more sophisticated in our marketing efforts.
Ted Waitt
Mankind is considered (by the radical environmentalists) the lowest and the meanest of all species and is blamed for everything.
Dixie Lee Ray
For me, a really radical position for journalism to take is to stop being cynical. Cynicism is what passes for insight among the mediocre.
Joe Klein
Foreign writers – especially Germans – often feel that Shakespeare is really one of them, that he was somehow accidentally born in the wrong country. In much the same way, leftists sense in their bones that he was a radical, rightists that he was a Tory.
Daniel Hannan
Our conscience is not the vessel of eternal verities. It grows with our social life, and a new social condition means a radical change in conscience.
Walter Lippmann
I will never back down from the radical left, and I will always put America and our military first.
Ronny Jackson
The Nation of Islam provides an antidote in the United States to fundamentalist Islam – which is why individuals from America have to go abroad to find radical teachings.
Wole Soyinka
Carlos was a character, a character fabricated by Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, fabricated by the secret services of the epoch, fabricated by the governments of the epoch, by the radical groups of the epoch, by the communications media.
Edgar Ramirez
America needs to fully grasp the lessons learned from our history of fighting radical jihadists. There have been successes and failures.
Pete Hoekstra
Radical Islam, it has grown into a global jihad.
Jack Keane
The time draws near, when a radical change must take place for the whole world in the management of diplomacy.
Lajos Kossuth
I prefer for government to err toward less regulation, lower taxation, and free markets. And I’m a radical free trader.
Mark McKinnon
Universal suffrage is sound in principle. The radical element is right.
Rutherford B. Hayes
Even Milton Friedman – doyen of radical free market thought – was willing to consider some government intervention into primary education on the grounds that it is unfair for children to not get a chance in life because they were born to poor parents.
Abhijit Banerjee
It’s about time we all faced up to the truth. If we accept the radical homosexual agenda, be it in the military or in marriage or in other areas of our lives, we are utterly destroying the concept of family.
Alan Keyes
I think Dilbert is actually a radical strip.
Ted Rall
President Trump identifies the hatred and intolerance expressed by his radical opponents and names it for what it is.
Charlie Kirk
When I fought the Tories over climate change and won, more than trebling renewable power with a new subsidy policy combining state intervention with competitive market forces, it was world-beatingly radical.
Ed Davey
In the late 19th century there was a major union organization, Knights of Labor, and also a radical populist movement based on farmers. It’s hard to believe, but it was based in Texas, and it was quite radical. They wanted their own banks, their own cooperatives, their own control over sales and commerce.
Noam Chomsky
I have my life. I have my values. And compared with much of society, especially football, that is radical.
And what’s interesting about the hybrids taking off is you’ve now introduced electric motors to the automobile industry. It’s the first radical change in automobile technology in 100 years.
Chris Anderson
When I was younger, people were inventing a new way of writing – James Joyce, Hemingway, Faulkner. And I thought we had to find a structure for cinema. I fought for a radical cinema, and I continued all my life.
Agnes Varda
Our immigration policy should not aim to forcibly change the cultural character and social fabric of Canada, as radical proponents of multiculturalism want.
Maxime Bernier
Are we fighting too many wars? And I would say no. We’re fighting one war. And it’s a war against radical Islamic Jihad.
Tom Cotton
As a genre, the best horror poses central human questions – Who can you trust? What is the cost of our secrets? What is our relationship to history? What are we blind to? What evils are lurking under the smooth surface of the self? – through radical dislocations.
Laura van den Berg
I am still radical!
Alejandro Jodorowsky
The major advances in speed of communication and ability to interact took place more than a century ago. The shift from sailing ships to telegraph was far more radical than that from telephone to email!
Noam Chomsky
The Iranians are abusing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to gain more support from radical elements in the region.
Tzipi Livni
Congressional Republicans are dismantling the limited environmental protections initiated by Richard Nixon, who would be something of a dangerous radical in today’s political scene.
Noam Chomsky
Servants are not allowed to ask questions. They are only supposed to follow orders. That attitude has to change. But in order for it to change, there has to be radical improvement in the quality of the intelligence produced by the Mexican government.
Adolfo Aguilar Zinser
In the 1980s and 1990s, radical change in economic policies fostered by Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher put the brakes on government planning and ushered in a new free-market supply-side era and a two-decade boom. That model has been abandoned in the new century. This must be reversed.
Lawrence Kudlow
And initially, a lot of companies avoid trying to make a really radical new kind of title for a new system, because that would involve learning a new machine and learning how to make the new title at the same time.
Trip Hawkins
What I do isn’t radical. It’s just distinct in small ways.
Annabelle Selldorf
My dad… was in the military, a drill sergeant, when he was a preacher. You know how some Christians really get into church and become very radical? Imagine him as a radical and a drill sergeant. It was intense.
Ro James
With a successful center-right party such as ours, it is hard for the radical right to find room to operate. This is why they repeatedly attack us in the ugliest manner. They attack us more than they attack the Jewish community or the ‘Jewish conspiracy’ – which they believe exists. I am one of their main targets.
Viktor Orban
The greatest threat facing humanity is a radical Islamist regime meeting up with nuclear weapons.
Benjamin Netanyahu
Creating an overall healthy lifestyle for yourself doesn’t require a radical diet or significant life change. In fact, it can be attained through common sense decisions about the way we eat, move, and live.
Harley Pasternak
For some members of the radical Left, particularly in the West, people in developing countries are an ideological abstraction, on whom fantasies of liberation are projected from a comfortable distance.
Amitava Kumar
There is a difficulty in combating the type of terror that is perpetrated by groups of radical Jews. It’s terror from within, and it is difficult to bring these perpetrators to justice; we need to create tools in order to combat this style of terrorism.
Reuven Rivlin
What we’re putting forward is the most radical reform of the welfare state… for 60 years. I think it will have a transformative effect in making sure that everyone is better off in work and better off working rather than on benefits.
David Cameron
At some point we must realize that actively defending against radical Islamic teachings is not a matter of cultural relativity. It is a matter of universally recognized human rights.
Armstrong Williams
When I started out, nearly every architect I knew was working in public practice; that’s where the radical thinking was done. But, there’s always a danger of looking back as our fathers did and saying, ‘Things were better then.’
Richard Rogers
I do not believe in populism. I am not a supporter of radical decisions. Practice has shown that usually these are harmful.
Valentina Matviyenko
Futurism eventually got marred by its link to Fascism, but early on, it was totally avant-garde, and I wanted to dream a phantom link from the early futurists to the politically radical Italy of the 1970s, a time of fun, play, subversion – if also violence and mayhem.
Rachel Kushner
America has always welcomed anyone willing to assimilate to its national character. But radical Islam rejects assimilation and is bent on the conquest of our national character.
Nancy Pearcey
The advancement of all sciences, especially where there has been such a radical change, have been attended with persecution.
Daniel D. Palmer
Playing in London in 1979 was exciting: it was at the start of new wave, the transition period after punk, and there were a lot of radical, fashionable young people on the streets and in the venues.
Ryuichi Sakamoto
We need a clear plan to put radical Islamic terrorism out of vogue, and it should be eliminated at its roots. American SOF are part of the puzzle, but they do not, by themselves, complete the picture.
Brandon Webb
Radical Islamists spread from Western Africa through the Middle East, all the way to South Asia to sub-Indian continent.
Jack Keane
I know that doesn’t sound very radical and webby of me to say that but I think the New York Times is important. I also think there’s an occasional piece that will pop out.
David Talbot
If a radical devolution of powers was possible, it would have been done before. The assumption of states’ rights is gone. There’s no support for it in the Supreme Court and there’s no support for it in public opinion.
James Q. Wilson
I am a radical in thought (and principle) and a conservative in method (and conduct).
Rutherford B. Hayes
Hamas murders not only Israelis, but also Palestinians whose political stance is different from that which its group promotes; that is, its radical religious outlook in which Islam is the solution to the world’s problems.
Mosab Hassan Yousef
It’s a radical time for musicians, a really revolutionary time, and I believe revolutions like Napster are a lot more fun than cash, which by the way we don’t have at major labels anyway, so we might as well get with it and get in the game.
Courtney Love
We should not judge Islam by terrorists. All civilizations and cultures produce terrorists. Every time there is a flag-burning, killing, or provocative films, I’m worried, not because something radical will happen, and this time, some people are killed. We’re very sorry for that.
Orhan Pamuk
I am on the right wing of the middle of the road and with a strong radical bias.
Tony Benn
Our party’s greatest achievements have always been delivered from the radical centre-left.
Ed Davey
I think I am a radical. I have never deviated from that. By radical, I mean someone trying to go to the root of things.
Bill Ayers
I refuse to stand by and watch as Sen. Tester tries to implement his radical environmental agenda here and kill our coal industry and destroy thousands of Montana jobs.
Matt Rosendale
In the past, rogue members of the State Department flew the flag of the radical Marxist group, Black Lives Matter. The domestic terrorists represented by that flag have burned down our cities with the mission of defunding our police.
Marjorie Taylor Greene
There was no censorship of the press: in general, the War Measures Act could have been made even more radical.
Robert Bourassa
The psyche of the individual is commensurate with the totality of creative energy. This requires a most radical revision of Western psychology.
Stanislav Grof
In ‘The Transparent Society,’ I am actually no radical. I accept that some secrecy is necessary and avow that human beings have an intrinsic need for some privacy.
David Brin
I like to stay balanced in life, so I don’t have to do some radical diet. I love my job, and I obviously want to feel good when I am working, but I also want to feel energized and agile all the time. As a New Yorker, I live in the land of plenty, and yet every day I see people who could use a good meal.
Julia Stiles
I just try to get away with as much as I can. I don’t think that’s very radical in the art world.
Barry McGee
The radical Left wants control over the lives of the American people and will sink to any depths to get it.
Kayleigh McEnany
I want the United States to be having a much larger and more public conversation about racist capitalism. We need a radical reimagining of the economy in this country.
Asia Kate Dillon
I will not allow America’s elections to be further corrupted by radical left-wing policies shoved down our throats.
Marjorie Taylor Greene
The Arab spring was not as radical as the French or Iranian revolutions. It did not pull out the deeply entrenched roots of the state. Instead, it was satisfied to replace the top of the pyramid with newly elected, but inexperienced, leaders.
Wadah Khanfar
Radical socio-economic transformation is a policy of the ANC. As a leader of the ANC, you have to implement the policy. When I talk about radical socio-economic transformation, it’s not my thing; it’s an ANC policy.
Jacob Zuma
The struggle against radical Islam should be a joint struggle, and everyone should say, ‘There – we are sacrificing something.’
Marine Le Pen
Right from the outset, the prevailing mindset in British comics fandom was a radical and progressive one. We were all proto-hippies, and we all thought that comics would be greatly improved if everything was a bit psychedelic like Jim Steranko.
Alan Moore
The movement towards radical transparency and accountability has been gaining steam for several decades.
Heather Brooke
Conservatives hold on to things not only because they are attached to them, but also because they do not see the sense in radical change, until someone has told them what it will lead to.
Roger Scruton
This radical transformation of world power relationships reflects primarily in the case of both the USA and the USSR the growth of the productive forces.
Earl Browder
The radical otherness of birds is integral to their beauty and their value. They are always among us but never of us. Their indifference to us ought to serve as a chastening reminder that we’re not the measure of all things.
Jonathan Franzen
Hip-hop belongs in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It’s one of the most radical, revolutionary and reactionary music there is.
Steve Miller
One of the most radical things women can do is to love their body.
Eve Ensler
Briefly after the 9/11 attacks, Republicans and Democrats were united in identifying the evil of the radical jihadists and fighting it.
Pete Hoekstra
I am becoming more radical with age. I have noticed that writers, when they are old, become milder. But for me it is the opposite. Age makes me more angry.
Nawal El Saadawi
We are held up by the radical Muslims as the enemy. So every time we go into one of these countries to do – we think – the right thing, we become propaganda for this radical movement.
Lois Frankel
I am a radical.
Carter G. Woodson
No one among us suffers the radical appreciation for coffee that I do. It calls to me, but I have learned not to listen.
Ron Carlson
Webern was a kind of ‘Kamchatka of music,’ an unknown country of music. That’s true; for me and people of my generation, he was a radical – you couldn’t be more radical than he was.
Pierre Boulez
Radical conservatives want to police bedrooms.
Robert Reich
No matter how many times you’ve seen the movies and the TV shows that have a protagonist leaping in the path of a bullet, physics forbids such sacrifice. Because of a bullet’s radical speed, you can’t jump in front of it, but you could get in its way. It’s not as dramatic, but it does save lives.
Kyle Hill
Even the most radical Islamic terrorist would not want to see the revered holy city of Medina go up. It would be like losing the Vatican in Rome.
Nelson DeMille
The idea that UN commitments should be followed by action is indeed a radical one, especially for the United States, where wilful neglect of its own commitments is the rule.
Jeffrey Sachs
