Progressives want equity, but also want inclusion and representation in all forms. Most progressives are not progressive at all. Also most progressives are not socialist or communist that people on the right accuse them of. I had to rep you on your post buddy.

Utopianists.

Which is neither possible, and even if it was, humans don't want it as it is inconsistent with human nature.

In truth, the policies they are peddling in order to make every equal, regardless of ability, intelligence, motivation, decent values, etc. (such as reparations, housing downpayments for blacks, health care for illegals, sanctuary cities, and wipe-out of student loan debt), would bring about economic collapse within a decade.

What we be a more apt label for them? I'll start.

1. EQUALIZERS





Research - "The Progressive Era" and see it's Marxist roots.
The point when Racist Tyrants, became "intellectual". Mind control can be more powerful than the whip & sword.

If a MAGA asks what a leftist looks like I tell them to look in the mirror.

Well, you are an admitted Anarchist. However, that won't work either, and the Founding Fathers knew that Government was a NECESSARY EVIL. We need SOME government, a very LIMITED, Restricted government. We don't want to be governed, ruled, nor dictated to as that becomes abusive.

The Government should FEAR The People, but they are so powerful and insulated, they don't.

Anarchy is human nature. No one has the right to rule over another person without their consent.

I never consented to be governed. Remember the Declaration?
