Sir Bernard Rowland Crick was a British political theorist and democratic socialist whose views can be summarised as "politics is ethics done in public". He sought to arrive at a "politics of action", as opposed to a "politics of thought" or of ideology, and he held that "political power is power in the subjunctive mood." He was a leading critic of behaviouralism.
|A politics of vengeance is not politics. Revenge is a recklessness towards the future in a vain attempt to make the present abolish a suffering which is already past.||Politics, Politicians & Political Campaigning & Fund Raising|
|Political activity is a type of moral activity. It does not claim to settle every problem or to make every sad heart glad, but it can help some way in nearly everything and, where it is strong, it can prevent the vast cruelties and deceits of ideological rule.||Politics, Politicians & Political Campaigning & Fund Raising|
|Since the business of politics is the conciliation of differing interests, justice must not merely be done, but to be seen to be done.||Justice & Injustice|
|The fundamental problem of society is that demands are infinite and resources are always limited||Budgets & Budgeting|
|There is no great danger to politics in the desire for certainty at any price.||Politics, Politicians & Political Campaigning & Fund Raising|
