Progress - the Most Absurd Myth
Progress - the Most Absurd MythFollow @KnightsTempOrg
Liberalism is based in large part on the idea that Mankind's past was primitive, but that it has been improving steadily ever since, and will continue to do so. History, according to this liberal fantasy, is linear, and liberalism will bring us to perfection - the 'End of History'.
Real life, needless to say, is totally at odds with childish liberal theory. History is not linear at all, but cyclical. "Hard times make hard men. Hard men make good times. Soft times make bad men. Bad men make hard times...." There's far more wisdom in that old saying, turned meme, than in all the scribblings of all the liberals who ever wasted good air on this earth.
