POVERTY IS PROSPERITY
SQUALOR IS LUXURY"
Statists, who I call regressives, are currently fond of calling themselves “progressives” (a few years ago they preferred the label “liberal”). One of the characteristics they seem to invariably share is their subversion of the language to suit their own perception of the world. And one of their subversions has inverted the ladder of human progress, allowing them to place themselves on the top rung.
However, this is merely another subversion of reality which they do, indeed, engage in liberally. In the liberal spirit, I’ve taken the liberty of creating a little presentation which shows the steps of humanity’s honest pursuit of truth. Truth is a constant for all cultures in all times, and can be defined at its simplest level by stating how operational systems function that are not artificially constrained – be they the courses of the universe’s constituent galaxies, stellar and planetary relationships, the earth’s ecosystem, or mankind’s interactions with his fellows and his world throughout his species’ time on this earth.
The ladder is not strictly hierarchical. Sometimes the rungs blur or merge, for individuals and societies. But the progression is empirically valid.
Some individuals and societies never even grasp the second rung. Others may go higher, then plunge down if they see continued progress as requiring too much effort, or decide to pursue idolatry rather than truth. Unlike many individuals over the course of history, no society has ever grasped the top rung. That is to be expected. It’s humanly impossible. There is no collective Salvation.
Our society has decided the ladder needs to be turned upside-down. Problem with that is, the ladder’s bottom rung is fixed to the world, and society winds up only turning itself.
Prog liberally and regressively ON!!
Progressive evolution to a chicken in every pot politics.
You can now watch the progressive evolutionary process right before your eyes on TV!
Father Darwin would be so proud.
D4U - an accurate presentation of one of Bashir's favorite activities, as he follows along in the circular "conga line of freaks" that makes MSLSD the wonderful prog showcase it is.
PeoplesComrade and Anyer Marx, your illustrations of progressive evolution are so right. Regressives believe men came from monkeys. They act like monkeys, and they want to make everyone else monkeys just like them.
Welcome to the monkey cage of Regressivism! FWORD!
