Why do progressives/liberals trust the gov't so much?

History has shown us repeatedly that government will always abuse their powers and they will never ever give up any new power they gain.

Is it naivety or do they really want the gov't to have so much power?

Life might be ok without the government if you were a well off white man.

Progressives look to the government for solutions instead of relying on the individual.

In the small amount of time I've invested in inquiring on the subject, the general line of thought goes something like this:

Individuals can be horrible, cruel creatures. Humanity, as a whole, is good. As such, if you temper the individual cruelty by forcing individuals to behave not as individuals but in groups, there will be a regression to the mean (good).

who else benefits from not having government not tell them what ot do?

You think minorities & women think it's the government that historically held them back?

& let's get it right - it's sex-baiting, class-baiting, AND race-baiting.

everyone?

i believe in limited government. i'm not ancap, but what's so bad about freedom/liberty?

i don't care what they THINK

why couldn't women vote until the 20th century? government

who instituted jim crow laws? government

those are stone cold facts

why do you feel that government solves the problems of government?

Do you have to carry around spare towels to sop up the white guilt that must be constantly seething from your pores?
