From p. 369: "Reagan may have acted the part of the genial communicator to his constituents and may thereby have fooled millions of people, but he did not fool us. In reality, beneath that thin veneer, he was as mean as a snake. Like most arch-conservatives, he claimed to defend freedom, but, because he equated freedom with the right of conformists to get rich however they chose, while letting the chips fall where they may on the rest of us, he in fact defended only property, both private and public, never genuine human rights."
