Immanuel Kant said that progress is 'a movement away from barbarism towards civilization'.
Politics 101 says:
"Progressivism is a term describing a political movement and ideology in which the subscribers believe in progress, change, or reform, particularly in regard to who has control over the government.Progressives are generally considered to represent the far left; they tend not to like the status quo and see the current political climate as being dominated by corporate interests.Progressives embrace pluralism. Their platform includes social justice, pacifism, environmentalism, and human rights. They believe in the democratic process via more direct voter control and they champion consumer rights."
I get called a lot of things on this site, but I never understood why being called a 'Liberal' or a 'Progressive' was a negative thing--why it is used in a derogatory way.
I do believe in change, and I certainly believe in justice and human rights. Do folks on the 'right' really
disagree with those things? Or is it that, while they agree in equality, justice, reform, etc, they simply don't want to have to pay for it?
Because you fucking RETARDS advocate for the very things that hand power over to banks and corporations:
A. Ever expanding nanny state government creating generations of state dependent retards through public school indoctrination
B. Never ending government created out of thin air debt which of course enriches banks and corporations....
Idiots like yourself ARE the problem, not the solution.
