Mr. Smith Goes to Anchorage - Readers' Comments -

Mr. Smith Goes to Anchorage - Readers' Comments - "To this ex-pat Alaskan, born and raised in a young state once renowned for its tolerance and progressivism, the contemporary Republican party appears to have sold out virtually everything remarkable and noble about the Last Frontier: social equality, deep respect for individual liberty, and, often forgotten, an almost unrivaled equal distribution of wealth. All have faded terribly. So many minds of contemporary Alaskans seem poisoned, made ugly with the malicious logic of selfishness, the Great Land made small by the idolatry of oil, by absurd class aspirations, by an egotism alien to a harsh climate where survival depends ultimately on the goodness of other people."
