  •  Being a progressive boils down to: (11+ / 0-)

    advocating for justice and democracy on many levels.  It is all about people, life and a future on earth.  

     It is not the selfish "me first" of libertarianism that seems so prevalent today.  

    I don't think one can be a progressive without some empathy, although it also makes extremely logical sense because it focuses on the well being of all of us, not just some at the expense of others.   We think about the we of  today and future generations of we.  

    Dollarocracy is not Democracy
