I always enjoy the random quote on the front page but this one struck me kind of odd.

I don't remember where it is from but I'm pretty sure the source would have the word I underlined here being antagonist.

Wouldn't make a thread about it but I thought it was an amusing kind of error.

It is from The Lessons of Vietnam, and it indeed uses the word antagonist rather than protagonist, as well as anyone's rather than anyone\'s.

"Nobody respects an altruist, neither in private life nor in international affairs. An altruist is a person who keeps sacrificing himself and his values, which means: sacrificing his friends to his enemies, his allies to his antagonists, his interests to any cry for help, his strength to anyone's weakness, his convictions to anyone's wishes, the truth to any lie, the good to any evil."
