Evolution and Progress
I was thinking that political systems evolve as everything else does and over the centuries philosophies and ideologies have back and fort dialog as the interact and inbreed. The Protestant movement of Martin Luther and the rest wrestled with the Roman Curate while they in turn beat up on the various sects that Catholicism begat. It is oxymoronic yet accurate to call this gigantic struggle a microcosm of the universe of intellectual struggle. I say this because we exist in a universe that is constantly editing itself. To not be aware of Progressiveness in the political structure which, by the nature of its name defines its intentions, is simply to ignore the inevitable whether it takes centuries or epochs minutes or years you cannot stop progress. What progress means is the next question.
