Progressives and reactionaries (27/03/22 08:57:24)
My preliminary starting point is, according to my observation and analysis:
- those who call themselves progressives let ideology and principles take priority. Practicalities, pragmatism - are looked down upon, frowned upon, frozen out, excluded - or worse. This makes them easy targets for reactionary populistic attacks.
- the powers that be - which are more or less reactionary - have the priority of staying in power. Practicalities, reason, honesty, science, environment protection, good manners, sound economics - are actively suppressed in spite of the damage done in the long term. Religion is a powerful ally.
So a real progressive has a much more difficult job than the reactionary establishment.
