Tariq Ali has been a long time radical. Ever since the nineteen sixties, his has been a voice raised to promote socialism. His left-wing advocacy has never wavered, he is as equally passionate about his views now as then. He is an author, a journalist, a filmmaker, military historian but also a political activist. His opinion on the merging of political parties into a centrist smudge, which he refers to as 'Extreme Centre, was published as a book.
“To fight tyranny and oppression by using tyrannical and oppressive means, to combat a single-minded and ruthless fanaticism by becoming equally fanatical and ruthless, will not further the cause of justice or bring about a meaningful democracy. It can only prolong the cycle of violence.”.
