Progressivism in a nutshell

Belmont Club » Beyond Reproach

The progressive agenda fundamentally rests on the notion that ordinary men need brilliant people to tell them what to do. It depends on the idea that left to themselves the great unwashed would merely swill beer, drive pickup trucks and believe in superstitious nonsense like good and evil, right and wrong, God and the devil. And how much better it might be if we instead listened to the enlightenment of the Great and the Good.
As columnist David Harsanyi put it a little more succinctly: "Progressivism is the belief that we have too much freedom with which to make too many stupid choices."
