During the Cold War, Progressives around the world were so named because they championed the rights of the individual over that of the State. Interesting? Of course this was a differentiation that balanced totalitarianism on the other end of the see-saw. Today I believe Progressives continue to step up to the rights of the individual but here in America and in many other countries around the world, it isn’t to protect the individual from the State but rather to protect the individual from the plutocrats and the corporations which are rapidly enslaving the country.
It’s no secret that America has become a Fascist country based on and dedicated to Greed, with Corruption and Mendacity for all.
