More Progressive Opinion

Recently I wrote a piece for the Brookstreet group blog on the word "progressive."

Typically a word used by the left to describe their policies, I argued there was nothing progressive about socialism.

Well, here is another take on the political use of that word.

The word "progressive" simply means forward looking and really can be either left wing or right wing just depending on what one sees as forward-looking. Usually it means left leaning since socialism has become a dirty word and liberalism in its classical sense means freedom or rather modern day libertarianism. Quite frankly I could really care less about terminology or what point a party is on the political spectrum. I care more about the ideas they present.
