The grip of the conservative ideas on the political agenda, and of conservative politicians on political institutions has been a feature of the latter part of the twentieth century in the USA, the UK and other western countries. This text traces the fight in divorcing benefits policy from concepts of social justice and identifies the existence and heritage of a liberal idea in the American polity. It sets the stage for the policy battles at the turn of the century and poses the question, "Is there anywhere left to go?"
