The Progressive Right

Discussion in 'The War Room' started by NewGuardBjj, Dec 20, 2016.

  1. The right can now claim to be the party of change and social reform. Nowhere is the irony of this about face more poited than in the rise of conservative SJWs (witness The Great Lahren).

    There are question marks, though. While the left has laid out multiple visions of what society ought to look like over the years, the new the right hasn't really sketched out a comparable view.

    I ask all of you do try your hand at this sketch. What is your vision of America? What should we strive for? What are the values our society ought to uphold?

    My thinking is that a comparable vision is unattainable. The populism of the right is not grounded in prescriptions for our problems but is instead an attempt to retreat from them. It's also a retreat from the anxieties associated with moral judgments. The one unifying idea is that we should have jobs, tons of them.




    "Make America Great Again"

    The question isn't when was America great, but how it will become great in the future.

    Uphold the Constitution in good faith and respect it until there's enough votes to change it. Pretty simple really.

    The constitution is a liberal document, especially now that slavery has been taken out of it. Give people liberty. Give Americans freedom. No bank is too big to fail. If it's too big to fail, break it apart. Hate speech isn't real. PC language is slavery.
     
  5. Can anyone be a little more specific?

    Conservatives have low openness i.e. on average are less interested in ideas. You could say their function in society is to steady the boat and rein back the reckless ideas of the left, not to come up with new ideas.

    To go back to the cultural values and norms of the great generation

    To even go back to the norms of 20 years ago would be a plus

    You make some shitty threads man

    I largely am. But I'm left on some issues. I think if we had reasonable leadership we could come up with a universal healthcare system that works. I don't think it's impossible. When it comes to individual liberty yes I'm libertarian.

    It's a great idea in theory, but I don't trust government's competency to oversee healthcare.

    Yea me either. Especially when Obama and the rest of the corrupt democrats pushed it through. "We need to pass it into to law so we know what it says!" Fucking traitors imo.

    If a group of real patriots, and intelligent men, got together and hammered out a plan, I think it could be done. But getting it done with our actual government, it's dangerous. The only way that might work is individual states figuring it out.
