modern-day progressive 'liberals'


Recommended Posts

I was bored, so I made a fictional interview with answers cropped from screenshots of Pillars of Eternity dialog with Edér, since - even when ripped out of context - he's got a way of hitting the nail on the head :p:




Mr. Edér, do you have a moment?




Would you mind answering a few questions?




You've been nominated for the "Hero of Dyrwood 2015" public choice award, but the readers of our news site are hesitant to vote for you due to some of your tweets. They want to know: What, exactly, do you have against left-wing progressives?





But if a group rallies under the name 'progressive' and even 'Social Justice', does that not indicate that they're the good guys? That they're selflessly thinking about the less advantaged?




Sure, there might have been some self-enrichment and collateral damage along the way. But considering the paramount importance of the great struggle for social progress, can't you excuse a few temporary side-effects like progressive decision-makers having to subvert the constitution or curtail some civil rights a little?




So maybe the current progressive leaders and politicians are not perfect. But instead of giving up on the idea of effecting social change through expanded centralized power, couldn't we just make sure that this power will be wielded by good, pure-minded progressives whose noble convictions will deter them from abusing it?




Well I, for one, am a supporter of equal rights for all - regardless of race or gender!!




Oh really? Then what do you think of feminism, and the three waves of progress it has brought?




Clearly, you are a hopeless regressive sh*tlord.

That was great!

"The man of virtuous soul commands not, nor obeys. Power, like a desolating pestilence, pollutes whate'er it touches; and obedience, bane of all genius, virtue, freedom, truth, makes slaves of men, and of the human frame a mechanized automaton."

P.B. Shelley
