Iâ€™ve come to the conclusion that the United States is having a midlife crisis, an identity crisis. And this is a huge problem because if we donâ€™t know who we are, what we stand for, or how we arrived here, how can we know how to navigate the 21st century while maintaining the freedom and standard of living weâ€™ve come to take for granted?
US detractors (and there are many living within the boundaries of this country), it would seem, do not possess a very thorough understanding of our founding documents, the thinking from which theyâ€™re derived, or the importance of these ideas in maintaining the system of government which has served us so well over the past 200+ years. Much of the thinking on the Progressive Left echoes Socialist and Communist ideology, which historical records have shown to be enemies of freedom and creativity, two rights which I imagine if the Progressive Left were to be queried, they would admit are extremely important to them. The breakdown is that these people donâ€™t have the surplus of information necessary to understand the repercussions of what they are seeking. How does the Progressive Left stack up?
