    The mainstream of both parties are not trying raise the State above the Individual.

    They and the mainstream of American society does insist and make happen that the Individual is a part of Society.

    There are no mainstream politics in this time.

    Yes, mainstream politics exist, Trump found the seam (give him credit), and the next year the two parties are going to repair that seam and get the hucksters right and left out.

    I used the word common for the suffix for progressive; you made one up. But that's not my point, you failed to address my questions, because you can't, won't or became so flummoxed you needed to default to a syntax attack.

    What do you think is the root word for progressive?

    Do we still require horse, water power or timber solely for power? Do we still bleed the sick in the hope it will make them recover? Do we still make human sacrifices to assure a productive harvest? Do we still use snail mail to communicate, or do we mostly use e-mail? Do we still believe the son revolves around the earth? Do we still believe Trump tells the truth when he says, "believe" me (well some do...do you?)?

    The word "Progressivism" is in common use.

    If you'd like me to write you a book, we can discuss contractual terms. I'm expensive.

    In the case of its use for the current political movement, it is used as a mask.

    No, but some still seek total power over the nation, its citizens, the conducting of their lives and the product of their labors, and that is not progress.

    True, that's called Trumpism.

    If Trump is reelected in 2020 the America we know will no longer exist; in fact, the America we knew, has not existed since his very first tweet.
