Progressivism is the future. It’s the future of our nation and it is what this site was founded on; the liberal ideals to help us keep up with the accelerative nature of our time. We need to adopt these political and social ideologies in order to ensure prosperity. This kind of agenda is embodied by people like the Presidential candidate and Senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders. Bernie represented the kind of populism that should be at the heart of the democratic party. He stood for the progressive reforms in our industries (healthcare, gun safety, tax reform, banking, loan debts, civil rights and many more) that America desperately needs. Bernie is the perfect example of a candidate for the future. His is the progressivism of tomorrow.
As I have said before, it is American and youth progressivism that will drive our politics, and bring us closer to a stronger, more unified nation. Progressive ideas are at the heart of what America was founded upon. We stand for equality, we want justice and most importantly, we are never complacent. I advocate a progressive revolution that will necessarily reform our institutions and our culture, to better prepare us for the change to come. In our Modern Era, we are experiencing vast amounts of change in every industry, and we must be able to adapt with it. The new innovation in technology and globalization has empowered every individual like never before, to spread good and tackle some of the most consequential issues of our time, but also to spread chaos and destruction at unprecedented rates. Groups like ISIL have never been more enabled, which is why these overhauls in our institutions are so necessary to combat this. With limitless potential now at our fingertips, we assume the awesome responsibility of adapting to the accelerating changes of the Modern Era. For the better of our future, and for the better of every man, woman and child in America, we must re-assess the status quo, and get behind an American progressive revolution.
This progressivism is the foundation of Optimistic American, and is the base for which I will center every entry around.
