Chuckles sends a piece by one Fosetti and as Chuckles and I align on many things, I presumed I’d agree with this Fosetti.
Perhaps I didn’t read it fully but when he quotes one Moldbug:
Progressive Idealism is a nontheistic branch of Christianity, specifically its Unitarian (American) and Nonconformist (British) sects, both of course dating back to the Puritans, who were the first to construct the integrated political, educational and religious system who much-improved descendant now hold Planet Three in its icy, inexorable grip.
. . .
The only reason we don’t think of the Progressives’ descendants, the Psuedo-Democrats, as a Christain party, is that the Psuedo-Democrats don’t want us to. In fact, their theocratic ideology, progressive idealism, is the leading modern descendant of the most powerful American Christian tradition, the “mainline” Protestants, who infested New England in the early 1600s and for some damned reason have never left.
… I can only conclude whoever wrote those particular words is talking out of his proverbial. Where on earth does he get this c*** from? Perhaps Chuckles sent the piece to tear strips off. I think that must have been it.
For the notion that Progressive Idealism springs from Christianity is bizarre. It stems from the distinctly anti-Christian push, The Fallen [to put it in Christian terms], which also set up the Royal Society and the Frankfurt School among other groups, i.e. Them.
In a hair-splitting way, one could say that NT scripture is idealism but hardly “progressive” as the term is applied today. In fact it’s really rather reactionary, hence the constant assault by “progressives” and the attempt to marginalize it.
