Quote of the Day

“I hate America very deeply. The economic repression of the masses—institutionalized. Even Lenin couldn't foresee the extent of that.”

--Bill Haydon (Ian Richardson) in the 1979 BBC-TV miniseries, “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy,” based upon the novel by John le Carré.

This is the best quote from the mini-series, it reaaly does give the other side a bit of firm ground in which to pitch their ideologies.

It also gives credence to Connie in Smiley's People expressing her doubts by stating “was Karla right?”
