...replacement of the word "liberal" with the word "progressive..."
A spirited defense of modern liberalism against the mendacious attacks of the "opposition" is in order.
The Progressives could be welcomed into the fold, after a requisite period of detoxification: (i.e., no fellow travelling Stalinists need apply).
In common usage today, "Progressive" can substitute for "Liberal" when "liberal identity" has been so compromised or flattened by endless hours of abuse from talk show propagandists/hosts.
Perhaps we need "neo-progressives," the "old progressives" having been relegated to the dust bin of history.
Progressivism has some resonance in our politics. So does pragmitism and liberalism. Each of these movements supports democracy and freedom.
I'm a little suprised the names of the American philosophers Richard Roty, John Dewey and Sidney Hook have not been invoked in this discussion.
