Three Fundamental Differences Between Progressives and Conservatives, Pt. 1

Terrance Heath

Part I of III

When caught at something, it’s best to come clean. I was recently caught by the Crow, who — in a response to my earlier post about power outages and our politics of powerlessness — saw and asked outright the obvious question I’ve been hinting at for some time.

Heath has written enough essays like this to make me think about the next questions, even though he avoids it in this essay. Is the GOP intentionally fostering this helplessness? To what end? For a party that pushes the entrepreneurial spirit what is the benefit of helpless masses? Are sheep easier to rule over if they are complacent?

Now that it’s been asked, why not tackle it head-on?
