“It is clear that a transformation of society will not be achieved easily. It is also clear that it is not only the Left whose commitment to democracy need be questioned in such as situation. If a government that included communists were to come to power, it would almost certainly encounter an immediate deterioration of the economy due to business resistance and the flight of capital, resistance from the bureaucracy, delaying tactics through the various institutional channels available to conservative forces”

Dennis Altman, National Times 18/2/78
