If you love progressive thought, I DON'T HATE YOU! I love you very much, we're all brothers and sisters in these great democracies of ours and all worldviews feed into the wisdom of the crowd. It's the basis of democracy. I ask nothing of you, if you want to troll, please troll. If you want to hate, then at least be witty about it. Don't embarrass yourself with a cringy joke. But above all else: please, PLEASE comprehend that nobody is God's gift to the world imbued with his divine wisdom. Not me (lol, kinda), not you, not even Roosevelt himself (of which one do I speak? who knows? maybe both. maybe neither).
So this is a thread that I have created so that we might discuss openly the failings of 'progressive' ideology, even though it is not a single monolithic doctrine. It can be un-neatly grouped based on opinion leaders, elected representatives, and popular organisations.
And let's straighten something out--you and I!
I, the OP, am somewhat biased here. I acknowledge it. I won't lie to you about that, I will tell you, respectfully, to your face! Is that a crime? I don't believe so. I'm quite anti 1984 thought police. I'm not looking to incite hatred. I don't want anybody bashed or harmed. I just want dialogue.
So to you, my fellow conservative weirdos, and to YOU my sibling progressives, let us break bread, drink wine, and discuss progressive ideology in a respectful and constructive manner, shining the bright light of Gondor itself on both achievements and shortfalls alike.
