Progressivism is the enemy of Liberty.

Choose your side carefully, because the day of recokning will soon be upon us.

I choose to defend Lady Liberty.

Progressivism Please

by dogknees In reply to Liberty versus Progressiv ...

Because to me limiting my own behaviour when it adversely affects others is a fundamental part of civilised behaviour. Liberty is always contingent on not impinging on the liberty of another.

Yes and yes

Yes, limiting one's own behavior when it adversely affects others is a fundamental part of civilized behavior. I agree. And yes, liberty is always contingent upon not impinging on the liberty of another - which is exactly what progressivism does.

Please consider joining robo_dev and Delbert in the study hall.

Aggressor versus Defender

by maxwell edison In reply to Liberty versus Progressiv ...

Progressivism is the aggressor in an ideological war. Progressivism takes away (steals) from others that which is not theirs. Liberty is the defender.

Aggressors start wars. Defenders end them.

One man's ideological war

by robo_dev In reply to Aggressor versus Defender

is another man's attempt at reform.

Obviously a struggle for what's mine vs what's yours is the basis for all human struggles throughout recorded history.

The wealthy coal mine operator who pays his workers fifty cents an hour is hardly a hapless crime victim if his workers form a union and demand sixty cents an hour.

If your "reform" infringes upon another's liberty. . . . .

by maxwell edison In reply to One man's ideological war

..... it's not reform at all. It's tyranny. Again, you should educate yourself.
