No that's lazy and disingenuous.

Progressive is about PRIORITIZING your tax revenue for the benifit of society over the corporations and of the 1%.

It's about using technology to protect our country at home vs. being the boots on the ground global invader.

It's a thinking person's philosophy not a knee jerk infantile one.

For the most part, no.
It's mainly simple redistributionism, with a scattering of special snowflake syndrome.

Which is sad, because in a rapidly changing society (as ours has been for a couple centuries) there is in fact a need to provide stability and protections.

Instead we get hypocritical pandering.
If successful it results in greater dependency on the nanny state and ultimately a return to the feudalism it purports to oppose.

"Progressive is about PRIORITIZING your tax revenue for the benifit of society"

Giving people free stuff does not benefit society in any way, not even a little bit. Over time it makes people dependent, it makes people entitled, it reduces ambition, and eliminates responsibility. All these things are terrible to the human condition, these are all traits that are necessary for humans to over achieve and become the best they can be. If there is no fear or need scaring you or forcing you to do more, you will only be average.
