The ORIGINAL gathering place for a merry band of Three Percenters. (As denounced by Bill Clinton on CNN!)
and THAT is why there is a 4GW list!
Mike -- thanks for turning my attention to Corbin and Parks. I knew of their web site but am embarrassed to admit that up to now I hadn't really paid it much attention. That has now changed.
A movie from 1954 called "The Bamboo Prison" has the Chinese captors of American troops in the Korean war and are trying to convert them to full blown communists. They know some Americans are already sympathetic to communism and the Chinese referred to them as "PROGRESSIVES". So in 54 some understood exactly where "progressives" were coming from. I think they should be called "backward-ives" or something similar that would more readily identify them as not going in advance, but actually in reverse for mankind.
"to frame the Founding as a grand enticement, if not quite a crime, and the founders as crafty oligarchs, if not quite criminals."Well, this is not such a far-out claim. Half the population were suspicious of the "founding lawyers", and opposed the 1787 convention. Patrick Henry "smelt a rat".The REAL founders, like Patrick Henry and Sam Adams, were not crafty oligarchs. But those in the 1787 convention? Hamilton? Yeah, I think they were.
