“Progressive”policies are failing the real-world test

Posted by sanityinjection on February 9, 2010

In a great piece, Matt Welch, the editor of the libertarian magazine Reason, analyzes the so-called “progressive” policies of the Obama Administration and explains why they are failing both in the foreign and domestic realms. Essentially, Welch argues that it has been so long since progressives have been in power that their ideas have not had to meet the test of being applied to the real world. He also neatly disposes of the canard that the person of George Bush was the greatest obstacle to international cooperation and world peace: “No amount of international do-goodism is going to prevent countries from acting in what they perceive to be their own self-interest.”

    You will find it hard to get progressives to understand why these policies are failing when you can’t even convince them that these policies are failing. When you show them a disasterous consequence, they just blame Bush.
