Understanding the Progressive agenda

The Promise of American Life by Herbert David Croly

Here is a book, written in 1909, that is at the root of modern liberalism. It discusses in some detail how to use the powers of the Federal government to achieve a morally and socially desirable distribution of wealth.
The redemption of the national Promise has become a cause for which the good American must fight, and the cause for which a man fights is a cause which he more than ever values. The American idea is no longer to be propagated merely by multiplying the children of the West and by granting ignorant aliens permission to vote. Like all sacred causes, it must be propagated by the Word and by that right arm of the Word, which is the Sword.
This book is a must read for those that want to understand the agenda and actions of the Democratic Party's Progressive wing. The book may be downloaded from the Project Gutenberg site.
