The Pathology of Political Progressivism

The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, after I posted a quote shared by an acquaintance…

Rayn:

“Political Progressivism in the USA is an ideology that currently holds it to be an egregious wrong to refer disparagingly to women but considers it hunky-dory to kill them and their children with drone rockets. The evidence in this regard seems to me to be a matter of record and beyond dispute.”

~Robert Higgs

“But, Obama dropped *humanitarian* bombs on the innocent civilians of Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Libya, Syria and Somalia! Plus, democrats actually welcome any survivors of our ‘aid’ to come and live in America! Unlike those racist Republicans, the left cares about refugees!”

(Ramzy Baroud) Everyone seems to have a theory on how to obliterate ISIS, or ‘Daesh’. However, two points are rarely raised: one, concerning the origins of the group and the second, on whether there are genuine intentions to defeat it, in the first place.

We must boldly address the first to unravel the enigma behind the rise and growth of ‘Daesh’ – otherwise, how else can the group be dismantled.

We must contend with the second point before engaging in superfluous discussions about the most appropriate war strategy – that if war is, at all, the answer.
