The American Revolution was in 1776. The Russian Revolution was in 1917. Was America too early? Were the Founders simply not evolved enough?
CD rants on about the 'special debt' MLK says was owed to the Negro. From my way of thinking, the Negro thought his own way out of the existential beartrap of race, except of course for those who didn't and still cherish the Negro Solutions proposed 50 years ago by the likes of Bayard Rustin and A. Phillip Randolph. Those of course were socialists and Rustin's arc proved to be prophetic with regard to the intervention that Progressives believe they are executing on the nation.
I'm interested in your outline of the dimensions of that special debt, and exactly how 'America' is supposed to pay it. I say that very idea is socialist. I wonder, in consideration of that, how much you would suggest that the American Left is completely unimpressed with the idea of a completed America - ie that the sort of republic America is supposed to be is so wide of the premises of the Constitution, or of the proper ends of enlightenment that King's experiments as well as those of such activists after him, are just the beginning of an evolutionary process.
That being the case is it nothing more than America's wealth that keeps them here? I mean if the Constitution was nowhere near good enough, why not start fresh elsewhere? What is the special promise of America? Is it perhaps the flexibility of its body politic? Do Progressives believe they can morph America into the shape that Marxists failed to accomplish in Europe and Russia?
What is the endgame?
I think Progressives beleive that their progress does not end, that there are going to appear more steps in Maslow's hierarchy they will be able to deliver once they eliminate, through the miracles of the scientific method, all traces of the lower needs from the world's populations. In other words, utopia, or at least six or seven more Constitutional Amendments.
