    Because their philosophy is actually godless Communism where the state determines right and wrong.

    This is simple, or complex, depending on how far down the "progressive" rabbit hole you want to go.

    In short, liberals want to be able to call whatever they say truth, and whatever their opposition says a lie.

    In order to do this, they created the illusion called "reletavism" where truth is to be determined in the individual's mind who is pondering it. It's roots started in philosophy, where it is easier to talk people to accept it, then they slither it in to ever increasing areas of life until the truth in now defined by those who THEY SAY have truth.

    Of course if you disagree privately, they can politely let you go on, because after all, they tell you that your truth is your truth. The problem develops when you try to let your truth guide you in directions that oppose their version of the truth.

    Then it is you who must be silenced because you are lying and misleading others with your "untruth". You really don't need to go any farther down the rabbit hole than that unless youlike banging your head against brick walls. No sense, no logic, no reason, just do what they tell you, think what they tell you, and then you will be just fine with the liberals.

    It is easier to live with your "sins" if you can convince others that the wrong that you commit is not wrong.

    Because they would be wrong on their favorite issues. The words would generally be right, but the actions would be wrong.

    I think there are 2 kinds of people when you're talking about right and wrong: Absolutists and Relativists. Absolutists see everything in black and white; everything is either Yes/No, Right/Wrong, no middle ground. Relativists, otoh, ALWAYS see an option or possibility or question. It's not that they don't have standards, it's just that they aren't comfortable with words like "always" and "never." If you ask Relativists "Is it ever ok to rob a bank," they'll come up with scenarios where it might be. Absolutists will say "No," and if you suggest a possible scenario, the reply will be something like "If you want to discuss the question in the abstract, of course there are probably times when it would be ok; I was taking the question in a concrete way for the U.S. at this moment."

    I think a lot of Progressives are Relativists. And a lot of Absolutists ask sloppy questions and make sloppy plans which make it easy for Relativists to find "loopholes."

    They do have a comfort with right and wrong, Mr Frog. As long as "they" are the ones who get to make the call

    in the 60's the trend to flip right and wrong started - good is bad and bad is good so they have a problem when you prove they are wrong - it only takes a few facts to shed light on their fallacy

    they will slam bush for going to war over oil - and then jump in their SUV and take their kids to soccer practice....

    Their world consists of feelings, and emotions, not facts. It is impossible for anything to be right or wrong. What they "feel" is right, IS right. And what they "feel" is wrong, IS wrong.
    Nothing is Black or white, Just different shades of grey.
    Reality has nothing to do with the reasoning they use to reach their conclusions.

    Because they do not live in the REAL world. They live in a fantasy land of fairness that is metered out by the fairness committee of the Department of Social Well Being and Equity! Therefore, they're standards are not based on anything of substance; only what they deem to be correct. Liberalism, at its core, is a mental disorder!

    They live in a gray world so how can they see through the soot? They see right....which is only their right but never see wrong until they think they are being wronged.

    Why do they even call themselves "progressives" to begin with? Progress to what? The ultimate liberal utopia of free everything? Just like this hype of hope and change. What has this hope and change come to?

    Yep. How's that hope and change working out for ya?

    Race relations in this once great Nation have taken a giant step backwards 50-60 or more years in my estimation. No one talks about that. At least publicly.

    Well, you're certainly wrong when you imply that progressives don't believe in right and wrong. Some things are right, some things are wrong, and yes, some things are relative.

    Because many things are not black and white. Or at least that is the way some of us see it.
