“Progressive” Righteous Zealotry Bodes Ill for Individual Life and Liberty

The brazenness with which mainstream “Progressives” (or “Modernists”) are now declaring not only their abandonment but outright hostility to the concept of rights is extremely troubling.

First They Came for the Happy Meals

San Francisco, a wonderful American city known for its traditions of tolerance and freedom, banned Happy Meals. My home county of Santa Clara already had. So this isn’t just the most far-left radicals pushing this agenda; it’s the center-left progressives who dominate the Bay Area. Some friends have wondered why I care about this…
