from the American Thinker:
Progressives on the Brink
The Trump era has exposed the dark, vindictive, and oppressive side of liberalism, but that side has always existed. “Progressives,” as they prefer to be known, have a long history of extremism going back to Woodrow Wilson’s Sedition Act of 1918 and FDR’s many power-grabbing activities, including the 1937 attempt to pack the Supreme Court. Progressive thinking, because it attempts to impose an extreme vision of society on a public that resists its measures, is by its very nature authoritarian, antidemocratic, and elitist. Liberalism is not the “party of the people,” as it has long claimed to be: it is, rather, a despotic philosophy that because of its intention of imposing “advanced” thinking on the masses can govern only through deceit and force.
