The next time a liberal attempts to pass as a “progressive,” it may be worthwhile to note the meaning of progressivism:
We aim to control the population and enhance its quality
This precise formulation is from a government official, courtesy of PBS’s China from the Inside.
I agree in principle, though implementation also brings with it risks that may exceed the costs.
Really good news. Both some unexpected humility from Barack Obama, and evidence that he has already begun relying on “Advisers,” thus minimizing the role of Obama in any future Obama administration:
“That’s exactly right,” Obama said. “And the truth is that we’ve got a bunch of smart people, I think, who know ten times more than we do about the specifics of the topics. And so if what you’re trying to do is micromanage and solve everything then you end up being a dilettante but you have to have enough knowledge to make good judgments about the choices that are presented to you.”
Obama’s own beliefs and statements are dangerous enough to make me root for an Obama of the Establishment. It looks like, if he’s elected, that’s what we are going to get.
A vote for Obama is a vote against Change.
