Progressives assert that they are the standard bearers of leading society into the next evolutionary development - that their "high minded ideals will bring about a utopia of peace and prosperity. But if this were true, wouldn't we as a nation be freer, more prosperous and have more opportunity than we did 100 years ago when they took the political helm? Instead we seem to be “progressing” back to the same oppressive ideas that inspired our forefathers and kicked off the American Revolution in 1776. 

The Dictionary defines progress as:

PROGRESS. noun \ˈprä-grəs, -ˌgres

1 movement forwards, esp towards a place or objective
   : a state procession
   : a tour or circuit made by an official (as a judge)
   : an expedition, journey, or march through a region
2 : a forward or onward movement (as to an objective or to a goal): advance
3 : gradual betterment; especially: the progressive development of humankind

But to become gradually better or more advanced as a society, the direction we should be progressing towards is more freedom and less government. To go in any other direction would simply be moving backwards towards the failures of the unevolved man of the past. Where more restrictive micro-managed control, more dependency, less individual freedom and less privacy and ownership were the standard – where the elite had privilege and the masses were at their disposal. 

There was no voice to represent them nor was there any power or opportunity for them. They were subjects and mere property and their only purpose was to serve the privileged. Someone who is a progressive, please explain how this social paradigm and construct is progress?

To make man subject to his government rather than the government to be subject to man is a return to a feudalistic construct rejected by philosophers, intellectuals, ethicists, and theologians alike. The idea of man being the master of his or her own destiny and not subject to an oppressive and tyrannical government has been the dream that each has tried to inspire in the masses for ages – the concept of freedom, and self-rule – that opportunity is available for those who are willing to try and have the skills to compete. 

The Democratic Republic of America with the Free Market system operating under the constitution is the dream of great thinkers throughout history. Those aspired ideas have not failed – what is failed is when equality of results is forced through legislation and regulation which in the end only favors the cronies of the legislature; thereby creating a crony corporatist culture that favors the privileged and elite, shuts off any competition, retards the market and currency and has to keep legislating special interest laws to placate the growing special interest groups. With each new piece of legislation and regulation, the original construct cannot work – since their ego’s and pride will not accept any responsibility or blame, they blame the free market, they blame the constitution or blame you having too much freedom – they blame everyone but themselves. 

The only thing that will fix this nation will be to return to the construct that made this nation great and implement the fully unrestrained dream that all the philosophers, intellectuals, ethicists, and theologians as well as founding fathers shared. If we are truly going to progress or be by definition progressive then we need to progress, evolve and advance towards the ideas of Autarchy, Personal Autonomy, Emancipation, Enfranchisement, Self-Rule, Manumission, Redemption, and Individual Sovereignty. Our goal should be, if we are really about progress, to downsize the government to such a level that a flat tax of 7% would be all that would ever be needed to supply all of our needs as a nation. If we are as evolved as the Ivy League intellectuals claim we are then this should be their goal in education – not to embrace Feudalism 2.0 AKA socialism. The goal from those who know should be about removing more and more constraints, equipping the individual to be disciplined and equipped to the level of complete and total self-reliance and zero dependency. 

But see the Ivy League intellectuals aren't being intellectually honest with you because everything they promote is increased dependency, governmental supremacy and collective control and uniformity. Dissenting ideas are not embraced and explored for understanding, they are demonized, dismissed and silenced at every level. That is not progress - that is old school monarchical totalitarianism. It is tyrannical oppression in the truest since. Anyone advancing the cause of freedom, individuality, unity in diversity, creativity and Non-dependent Personal Autonomy would be the true progressives as all of those ideas are about evolution of society to a higher and more civil level. The antithesis of that only leads to one place: a privileged elite ruling over the enslaved masses. 

Take back the definition from the so called “progressives” and start labeling them “digressives” or “regressives” - as they seek to digress the highest dream of the great philosophers, intellectuals, ethicists, theologians and our founding fathers of freedom, freedom, individuality, unity in diversity, creativity and Non-dependent Personal Autonomy and desire to regress us to a devolved societal state where an privileged elite rule the masses.
