TRUMP may not be thinking ( ie pedantically -the progressives problem) , but he knows what the people are thinking .( metaphorically - the big picture persons frame ) Its not working
Those in current power ( the progressives) who 'think" that progress is about following the market and running the country on the shallow virtues of mere sentiment are in for a shock - a reality check is coming for them .
The political philosophy of the left ( and even some of the new right) has always been reactionary. Even though, on the surface its changed, its morphed from marxism attacking greed to poor me hiding behind greed . So the impression that the progressives are " moving on , may just be an impression ' There is not much change in reality. If we are to seek full picture we must face the fact that the lefts picture of heaven on earth involves like the old - A father figure . A generous governor .
The left love to call it "moving on" , but whose kidding who ? Where is the Big picture?
The progressives think their ideal is "evolutionary " but evolutionary doesn't carry mean we all get carried off to heaven . The real biological process has limits but even natural selection has a warning to all who make it god ( it produces and explains everything. evolution , in such a use is clearly a faith,
You can't have a "moving on "philosophy without the risk that some unworthy edifices built by natural selection of the components will become extinct because they are naturally very weak .
In other words not everything works even under the influence of natural selection
If plagiarists and children were only to admit they picked up gems and called them their own we might have metanoia , instead of paranoia. Fully baked and working not half baked and in the dust bin of so many incomplete views of what evolution means for society ( Hitler Stalin Polpot all used the idea still so popular to advance the case for the " strong over the weak " .
Can we afford another experiment based on the philosophy of evolution, the religion of evolution as the creator , the deterministic strictures of evolution as God ( cf reality of evolution in adaption) Clearly not , In One hundred years its caused a holocaust of unsustainable attempts at making like better for noone . Even allowing for the fact that its been the excuse for tyrants to run their own power games no one should forget how they retained that power ( power of ideas )
Final failure is what happens and is demonstrated to happen throughout history with idealism that doesn't work ,
Which is it boys ?
Having to eat their own words that 'morality is bunk ', the progressives can't NOW face the fact that their political philosophy is downright depressing shallow and patronising . So many in power and "in church "are not thinking because their political philosophy doesn't allow them to think.
Many are stuck as deterministic materialists YES they have adopted some "virtues " Not deep enough though to cut any deeper than scratching. Deep enough in their own myopia to make a splash in their own little birdbaths .But there is no future in crap, even if you currently hold power .esp COSTLY unsustainable crap
If you want some freedom from this intellectual gaol ( which relies on taxation and drip feed ) don't vote for TRUMP , and those who chase the popular, or desperate measures .
