Progressives are increasingly trying to ignore the US Constitution and conventional principles when it comes to people’s rights in order to forward their globalized utopian fantasies. This was demonstrated recently when California Governor Gavin Newsom criticized Judge Cory Wilson for overturning a California law that prohibited people with domestic violence restraining orders from possessing firearms because it failed to meet the Bruen test, which requires that gun laws have historical analogies with those in effect at the time the Constitution was written.
The postmodernist movement, which opposes conventional values and standards as being archaic or unnecessary in contemporary society by refusing to embrace any “great narrative” or universal truth, has had a significant influence on the progressive movement. The constitutional principles, which rely on historical precedent to decide how laws are understood and applied in our society, are fundamentally at odds with this way of thinking. Progressives have started to move away from history as a crucial tool for understanding and shaping our future, which is crucial for building a more harmonious unity.
Furthermore, progressives disagree with biblical wisdom’s extreme views on personal accountability, justice, and responsibility—principles that all societies must uphold if they want to create inclusive communities for people of various races, genders, and religious beliefs. Instead, these people concentrate on changing society through government involvement alone, failing to see that real change occurs when people come together to work toward common objectives and shared ideals. So, despite their hard efforts to press for change, progressives’ attempts to ignore history and utilize government involvement as a blanket answer frequently take them back down the same pathways they started out on. As a result, their efforts are virtually futile.
Progressives also frequently ignore the fact that many of the policies Donald Trump has implemented were already supported by administrations before him, while simultaneously exaggerating his influence over the legislative process despite his lack of control over Congress. As a result, whenever they don’t get their way, they blame Donald Trump. Unfortunately, because it is partisan and ignores personal circumstances that go beyond party lines, which should be carefully taken into account if progress is ever going to be made on social issues, this only serves to further alienate those who may actually be sympathetic towards progressive causes.
In the end, while it is understandable why some progressives might want a different form of government than what we currently have, it is important for them to think about how far their proposed changes go in terms of protecting individual freedoms. This can only be done in a way that is based on the guiding principles of our country, ones that are built upon centuries-old traditions meant to help us achieve even greater heights while still remaining true.
