Last November’s elections brought into Congress some of the most extreme office holders ever seen. Recently defeated Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill said: “I’d be lying if I did not say I was worried about this place. It just does not work as well as it used to.” Paul Kane of The Washington Post describes how in the early meetings of the new Congress “tensions flared and lawmakers walked toward each other in the well of the House. The chance of physical confrontation seemed to grow by the second… Shouting, near fisticuffs, emotions high…Today’s Washington could get worse.”
In terms of economic and political theory, progressive socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez want to destroy the traditional definition of America, calling for open borders, taxes of 70%, free schooling and free medical care for everyone from cradle to grave. Ocasio-Cortez is the latest radical progressive to enter the halls of government. According to one observer, three of the four members of the Democratic Steering and Policy committee have backgrounds with the Communist Party USA, indicating that “the 116th Congress consists of more hard-left members of Congress enjoying more power than at any time in U.S. history.” Loudon adds: “The federal government is infested with hard-core socialists and communists.”How long can a government remain stable with such a deep incoherence between consistent socialism/communism and classic free-market capitalism?
The clash between the Left and the Right is not restricted to political theory. Progressives today target traditional religious beliefs regarding both sexuality and spirituality, paving the way for secular relativism to march into all realms of American society. Senator Kyrsten Sinema is the whole deal. She entered the Senate claiming to be the first bi-sexual senator having summoned a “Pagan cluster” of witches to help in her election bid. Not a hint of moral absolutes of good and evil based on religious truths will hold back such progressives’ application of evolving cultural norms as the basis for defining morality. Progressives use all instruments available to them to enforce their code of secular virtues. One is religious incoherence.
