the progressive mindset

In the words of one of of first progressives:


“We (Americans) want one class of persons to have a liberal education, and we want another class of persons, a very much larger class of necessity in every society, to forgo the privilege of a real education and fit themselves to perform specific difficult manual tasks.”  Woodrow Wilson.


BTW, Trump is most certainly a progressive.

My problem with it is that in the antebellum south most of the white folk were illiterate, poor and unhealthy.


Not seeing the advantages right off the cuff.
