To clarify; I am no centrist. I believe that violent struggle might be the only recourse left to salvage and propagate progressive values. We should be fighting to counter reactionary forces, not empower them.
i am more interested in knowing what you think progressive values are, do you mind listing them so that we might get an idea? and if you can also shed some light on how and why these values are exclusive to the progressive left, it would be appreciated. i really want to get to the end of this, we need to know what you are trying to salvage and propagate.
