Socialism Gets Liberal

I don't have anything clever to say about it, but Marc Soudon's essay in Dissent on the evolution of French socialism, and how it reconciled itself with European liberalism, makes for a good read. I'd always just assumed that the Socialist Party only became more liberal after economic crises in the '80s forced Mitterand to abandon his economic platform, but evidently the history's more complex than that.
