Big Brother is a Progressive...
I just got the book and am barely into it. The first chapter is a historic review of the founding and the various philosophies and great minds that influenced it. And the individuals who denied their reasoning and argued for its irrelevance.
The focus is on natural law and natural rights and how they drive our concepts of morality and good and evil, and are immutable.
Progressives believe exactly the opposite; that everything is open to redefinition in their hands to adapt once sacrosanct principles to their agenda.
I have the feeling I should read the chapter a couple more times to get it to sink in.
T-S, I fear and believe that you and the article are correct. Of all the dangers to America and its success and way of life, the Socialist/Democratic/Swine are far-and-away the most lethal.
