Picoblog Question – 2015 – Post #63

Picoblog Question – 2015 – Post #63

After last night’s presidential debate, there was a great deal of discussion about Socialism versus Progressivism. What is the difference between these two political views?

My two cents, but please share yours:

Socialism, a form of Totalitarianism, means the government seizes ownership and control of all of the property (necessities of life + luxuries of life).

Progressivism means that the government takes ownership and control of all of the property slowly, gradually, “progressively.” The end result is the same.

  1. I agree with you. Trying to define socialism as anything else is sorta like saying someone is just a little bit pregnant. A rose by any other name . . . or maybe I should say a skunk by any other name.

    • What astonished me last night, David, was how many different definitions people were using, and none of them matched the dictionary definitions. Cheers, Ashley
