Question of the Week #59 – 2013: Culture

Question of the Week #59 – 2013: Culture

In the Democrat Party, are progressives the same as liberals?

My two cents (but please share yours):

No. By definition, progressivism is socialism implemented slowly. As a form of Marxism, progressivism is totalitarian, not liberal.


Responses

  1. Definitions of liberal & conservative have been so convoluted they’re almost meaningless. The term liberal should mean being in favor of liberty, but liberals of the democrat party are in favor of government running the lives of citizens – a far cry from liberty.

    Similarly, left & right are meaningless. Fascists are called right-wing extremists. So are Tea Party patriots, whose aims are exactly opposite those of fascists.
