Zinn is Everywhere

Howeird Zinn was a religious fanatic, and a bad historian. A religious fanatic, you say? But how is that possible? He was a communist, an atheist, a secular humanist, an anarchist, anything but religious.

Yes, he was. Those are religions too. Even socialism.

There is this to be said in behalf of avowed and doctrinaire
socialists, that their faith in the State is sublime. To them, the
institution of political power is the unerring shepherd of the flock,
the guide to the Good Society; it is also the antidote for all evil,
the maker of abundance, the embodiment of justice, the sublimation of
human aspirations. That they believe. To be sure, they affect an
elaborate rationalism, something they call dialectical materialism,
which in turn rests on a verbal agglomeration known as Marxian
economics. Logic and fact without end have been applied to these
notions to prove that they are only notions. But all this cerebration
has turned out to be sheer waste of effort as far as influencing the
true worshipers is concerned. They still believe. One cannot help but
marvel at, and admire, their devotional integrity.

The religion of socialism will come into its own, its devotees maintain, only when the devil worship of capitalism is done in.

Poor Howeird Zinn. I hope he enjoys his new job as Satan's inverted umbrella stand.

Why pick on Progressives?

Progressives are neo-barbarian, luddite fools who want to replace all scientific progress with their failed, pseudo-scientific, utopian fairy tale and take us back to the paleolithic period. In other words they are douchebags.

Q: Do you have a problem with Progressive Insurance?

We don't have a problem with their insurance product. But the company is also a major giver of money to politically progressive causes, and because of that the owners and managers are total douchebags.
