Posted on 03/04/2013 11:44:20 AM PST by VR-21
If the closest confidante and advisor to an extremely consequential American president had written a fantasy novel about a heroic social agitator with a plan to bring about a "benevolent" progressive dictatorship by instigating a brutal civil war, might one imagine that an honest press would take an interest? In fact this has happened, and America's actual press has tried to dismiss the book as a meaningless "bad novel".
In 1912, Edward Mandell House, Woodrow Wilson's most intimate and influential advisor, wrote Philip Dru: Administrator. (Read it online here.) House is credited with having orchestrated Wilson's presidential nomination, and was a prime mover in several controversial policy undertakings of his presidency. He was an avowed progressive, and, by his own lights, a master political manipulator and strategist. His novel's eponymous hero is a neo-Marxist revolutionary who insinuates himself into the machinations of politics in a speculative 1920 in order to prod America into a civil war, in which he himself is generalissimo of the great American progressive forces against the greedy capitalist conspirators who have been ruling the country through subterfuge.

Progressivism is, otherwise, a debilitating mental deficiency.
Of course. I have no misconceptions at all about the true goals and true probable actions of your average progressivist.
They, a progressive, will for example decry guns and the harm they do. The children...it’s for the poor children...the violence. WE NEED TO SOMETHING, ANYTHING...even if it takes your freedom away...it’s, after all for the children.
These are the same people that only want you to register your guns or divest yourself of those nasty (nebulous) assault weapons in the one breath, and then in a much later breath, kneel you beside a DHS bulldozed ditch and blow your brains out with the very same type of weapon they took away from you.
This was my first recording and hence, not as good, but if you want to understand progressivism, Philip Dru is a very good place to start.

Glenn Beck has spoken extensively about the Dru/Wilson axis over the years.
And not in a positive light.
Written by Wilson’s familiar, Col. House, eh? Might as well be written by the Devil himself.
You rang? (photo too big to post)
I think the author of the article put it perfectly when he described Progressivism as "...the political philosophy of sociopaths." I also think he hit the X-ring with "It is power-lust masquerading as a social theory, and merciless hatred for mankind dressed up as a new moral code." Gaffer, I've also noted how governments tend to jealously guard their "moral" monopoly on violence.
As the FR Grand Master Orator put it:
Were now in the endgame of Antonio Gramscis and Saul Alinsky's heirs and disciples. These are the murderous great-great-great-great-grandchildren of the French Revolution, cold-eyed with contempt for you and yours; spiral-eyed crazy with hate for what you believe in and possessed of that utterly unappeasable appetite for controlling mankind.
They are Killers Without Conscience.
