Suicide of the Progressive Movement

Donald Trump did nothing to destroy the progressive movement. It was more like a suicide. For eight years, progressives have supported economics by force, via the military. Both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton embraced Wall Street, the elite and the entire fascist movement. The rank and file of the progressive movement have focused on using government to insure they never hear anything but kind words. Certain groups were deemed special people but really got nothing out of the Democratic party except kind words of course. The biggest fear seems to be that of losing their status as special people. For all that is said about discrimination, it is actually fairly rare. For all of the anger against white males and others, there really is no means  to discrimination within this group. It is not in my nature but for the life of me, I can’t think of a way I could discriminate against anyone if I wanted to.  What is lacking is leverage and really an incentive to discriminate.

Various people have certain types of other people they don’t like. There just isn’t any way to make everyone be nice to everyone else, at least not by using government.

Over the last eight years, progressives have delivered absolutely nothing to their supporters. Instead, they sold the country down the river by going along with fascist initiatives.

The nerve of these people, amazes me. After all of the non-progressive things they have sponsored and participated in, they expect people to believe what they have to say about Donald Trump.

Progressives have now joined conservatives in that they are part of the ghost of a movement that used to have some value. Hollywood, athletes and other celebrities are making complete fools out of themselves with their comments and demonstrations with regard to Trump.

What fools these people are. The country didn’t vote for Trump. The country voted against continuing to be suckers for the same people who have been robbing them blind for eight years.* Discrediting Trump will not help their situation. If progressives want to be appreciated again, they must find an element of character to display.

If you are a progressive and you are upset at Trump, I am telling you, you are the problem, not him. He got rid of you and that is all his supporters wanted.

*The fascist movement that has taken over the country began with Ronald Reagan’s embracement of the Full Employment Act of 1978. It decelerated greatly under George W. Bush and continued through the Obama administration.

About Fantasy Free Economics

James Quillian independent scholar,free market economist,and teacher of natural law. Who is James Quillian? Certainly I am nobody special, Just a tireless academic and deep thinker. Besides that, I have broken the code with respect to economics and political science. Credentials? Nothing you would be impressed with. I am not a household name. It is hard to become famous writing that virtually no one in the country is genuinely not in touch with reality. But, if I did not do that, there would be no point in my broking the broken the code. If you read the blog, it is easy to see that there are just a few charts, no math and no quantitative analysis. That is not by accident. Given what I know, those items are completely useless. I do turn out to be highly adept at applying natural law. Natural law has predominance over any principles the social science comes up. By virtue of understanding natural law, I can debunk, in just a few sentences , any theory that calls for intervention by a government. My taking the time to understand the ins and outs of Keynes General Theory is about like expecting a chemistry student to completely grasp all that the alchemists of the middle ages thought they understood in efforts to turn base metals into goal. Keynesian theory clearly calls for complete objectivity. Government can only make political decisions. Keynesian techniques call for economic decisions. So, why go any further with that? Fantasy Free Economics is in a sense a lot like technical analysis. Technical analysis began with the premise that it was impossible to gain enough information studying fundamentals to gain a trading advantage. Study the behavior of investors instead. Unlike technical analysis, I don't use technical charts. What I understand are the incentives of different people and entities active in the economics arena. For example, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve with life in the aggregate. In the aggregate, only self interest applies. It is routinely assumed otherwise. That is highly unappealing. But, I am sorry. That is the way it is. I can accept that because I am genuinely in touch with reality. Step one in using Fantasy Free Economics is for me to understand just how little I really know. A highly credentialed economist may know 100 times what I do based on the standard dogma. Compare the knowledge each of us has compared to all there is to know and we both look like we know nothing at all. There is always more than we don't know than what we do know. I am humble enough to present myself on that basis. Why? That is the way it is. I am not bad at math. I have taught math. What I understand is when to use it and when to rely on something else. Math is useless in natural law so I don't use it. While others look at numbers, I am busy understanding the forces in nature that makes their numbers what they are. That gives me a clear advantage.
