In Progressive America Virtue Has No Value by iMaksim In Progressive America Virtue Has No Value by iMaksim
Satirical propaganda poster commenting on the lack of virtue in wanting your neighbor to buy things for you.

"No free government can stand without virtue in the people, and a lofty spirit of patriotism . . Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
- John Adams

It's dawned on me that socialism is like living with your parents for the rest of you life. Personally, I don't think it's dignified to be completely helpless without the government.

Its all to obvious from the comments that the pernicious propaganda mantra of "Divide and Conquer" has been a complete success. 👿

Taking care of one another is not surrender of dignity. Stop projecting your nasty, selfish, compassionless paranoia on progressives.
Being a selfish and hostile jerk who's afraid of helping others is no virtue in ANY world, progressive or not!

in today's America, if you've never worked a day in your life, and don't care to, the government will make sure you don't have to, by paying for your every need through taxpayers. having dignity is no longer a necessity for a good life.

in today's America, if you're against the government's views, you are labeled as a "terrorist." Such terrorists include most traditional Christian religions. what happened to freedom?

Your comment is a perfect example of the blind ignorance of collectivism. You wrongly assume two things. The first is, if the government doesn't take care of people no one will. The second is, the government created welfare state is actually helping people.

Your hate and envy makes it impossible for you to consider that a solution outside of big government is possible. I got news for you, not only is it possible it's far more effective.

I pity you for your self-inflicted narrow closed mind.

Ironically I could say similar things about religion and possibly many other topics, not that that justifies it.
