Looking To American History To Explain Why Progressives Never Accept Their Failures
I have been reading a new book, and as I was reading the chapter on how the anti-trust laws were first turned against the people and used to form a corporate-government alliance, the answer to a question about Progressives suddenly came to me. But before I explain my revelation, let me tell you about one of the best, most informative books I have read in years.
As much as I thought I knew about Progressives, the origin of the Progressive movement and the history of the early Progressive movement, this book has made it painfully clear that I didn’t know anything at all. In fact, this book might even be able to take Glenn Beck to school on this subject. I cannot recommend it highly enough – especially since it will also explain the source of many other current social and economic problems, such as the source of our impending monetary collapse. If you have the money, or have it in your local library, I urge you to read Judge Andrew Napolitano’s book, Theodore and Woodrow: How two American Presidents Destroyed Constitutional Freedom.
Now, one of the things that has always baffled me about the Progressive (Collectivist) is how they rationalize their failures. No matter how many times history has demonstrated that their ideas do not work, they never accept the lesson. Instead, they always blame their failure on ‘diabolical forces’ working against them, or the failure to try their ideas in a big enough way. And the split there is also related to the split in the Collectivist ideology. So, before we go any further, let’s take a moment to review that split.
