"The left bears a particular responsibility. No attempts to blame the Jonestown tragedy on the forces of anomic capitalism or on a paranoid leader, or on the CIA, can free us of the need to explain why the Temple was accepted as an ally of progressive movement in a region where the left is as strong as anywhere in the nation" (abridged from text on p.63).
