Indeed, some of the most prominent and outspoken of the liberal intelligentsia worked for the state, often in high places, and their self-assigned mission was to change the state from within. Drawing on the liberal tradition in Marxism, they sought to build a state that placed unprecedented emphasis on human beings – and that meant creating a more liberal, democratic order.
