Faith & Social Justice: In the spirit of Richard Overton and the 17th C. Levellers

Why I Am a Progressive, III

3rd of 4 commercials by the Center for American Progress and 2nd in the Mac v. PC format.  I should make clear that “Conservative v. Progressive” has not always translated into “Republican v. Democrat” in U.S. history.  Until the 1960s, for instance, the GOP had a stronger commitment to civil rights and the Democratic Party included a large component of Southern segregationists.  Also, conservatives have often come to embrace things (child labor laws, votes for women, etc.) that they originally opposed.  Progressives are pioneers in that regard.
