    Not at all. I know why you want a libertarian approach, but don't fret, it won't happen.

    Matthew is assuming that we'll all just shit ourselves without constant government supervision.

    I prefer the term "collectivist".

    These are people who are after power, and such power comes through collectivism.

    Without collectivism, you cannot amass large support that generates mass wealth and world conquering armies. Those that refuse to participate will be crushed under foot.

    Might makes right, so to speak. Just so long as they can amass a majority consensus everything is golden. This is why Hitler devoted himself to socialism and the nanny state. He knew that just so long as he took care of the German people financially he could sooth their war torn genocidal souls into compliance, and it worked!!

    Yup. And they sell their ambitions to an unwitting public by convincing them that the state = society.

    I explained how you are.

    A unsupported denial is not much of a rebuttal of my point.

    And reasserting your premise is not a supporting argument.

    I explained that Correll and dblack's comments are minimal in worth.

    They make unsubstantiated assertions without evidence to a valid analysis of progressivism, then say I have to rebut them. No, I don't.

    They can argue about the worth or not of progressivism, they can attack the analysis, but they haven't.
