So, by its very nature, progressivism moves forward continually
I really hate the terms "forward and backward" as they relate to politics.

"Change" makes some sense but no change is by definition "forward" or even "backward". It's not like all this shite hasn't been done before.

America....you have been judged and found wanting.....the wrath of a just God is about to be unleashed upon you. The cries and silent screams of millions and millions and millions of aborted babies has been heard by the God of Abraham. The horrors you are about to witness will cause even the most brave to cower.

May the God of Abraham have mercy on us all.

Pray the purification will not last long.

The goal is to effectuate a culture of constituency dependence upon government programs. The continued vote for which ensures perpetual program existence. To the current administration it matters not if deficits are created and additional spending is necessary to keep things going as they have effectively established a voting majority to take (via taxation) whatever they seem necessary to fund these wasteful (in a large number of instances) programs. If you did not vote for the current administration you are effectively doomed.

Total reliance on government.


I don't think it's total reliance, I think it's total control of the populace. That may be the same thing in your mind, but to me total reliance is a step towards total control.

It's just a progress towards authoritarianism. It's rather old school/regressive.

In who's opinion?

It would be a better world if everybody would work hard and pitch in to make me the wealthiest and most powerful person that ever lived. I am a very good person and would make an excellent Supreme Ruler.

Better question would be what are the goals of the U.N, CFR, Trilateral Commission... and I don't think you want to hear their goals. You wouldn't sleep tonight.

Better off just dealing with the deck of cards you've got in front of you..

Goal of progressivism in politics? To progress as society progresses.

Social conservatives are on the wrong side of history pretty much every damn time. 20 years from now, people will laugh at the morons who oppose gay marriage, just like we laugh at the morons in the black and white videos violently protesting blacks admission to public universitites..

Progress is what has made the country great.

We sure will laugh. We'll laugh while we eat our government issued healthy porridge from the local government owned food dispensary. We'll also laugh about how people used to eat sugar and own guns. We'll laugh about how people used to work for themselves and how they used to raise their own kids.

Its not rhetoric.its just the nature of society. It's slow and it won't happen tomorrow or any one day. But I know that by the time I die I'll be less free then I was when I was a young man. But it will all be done with good intentions and in the name safety and public good.

The question is flawed. Just as the question "what is the ultimate goal of conservatism?" is flawed. Assuming you're talking about reality rather than theory.

Society is in a continuing state of flux. The question is, imo, what philosophy best deals with that reality. There is no "ultimate goal".

My dad, uncle and both grandparents who were drafted to fight in wars abroad laugh at you.

Black folks who were alive in 1950 Alabama, Miss, and La laugh at you.

The women of America from only 100 years ago who couldn't vote laugh at you.
