 Progressivism: Transcending Liberalism and Conservatism
Progressivism involves honest and compassionate argument (based in human rights) on behalf, not of individuals per se, but on behalf of "the people." The bottom line here is this: that if we take good care of "the people," individuals will be just fine as well (since "the people" are properly comprised entirely of individuals).
Implicit in the progressive argument is the concept of lower and upper limits on fiscal and political power, that all corporate efforts ought be "of, by and for" the people, not in the interest of individual self-aggrandizement, that corporations do not have rights that transcend individual rights, that individuals are best protected within a meritocracy.
Progressivism transcends individual anarchy and corporate tyranny by approaching democracy in the name of "the people." The progressive synthesis yields an individual tyranny (when individuals take control of themselves and assume personal responsibility) and a collective anarchy (when "the people" take control of their own government to make it "of, by, and for" the people).
