Everything ‘Conservatives’ value were once ‘Liberal/Progressive’ ideas: 3 synergistic partnerships for near-immediate peace, prosperity, unity in diversity

conservative: 1. disposed to preserve existing conditions, institutions, etc.

progressive: 1. advocating improvement or reform.

synergy: 1. the interaction of elements that when combined produce a total effect that is greater than the sum of the individual contributions.

Conservatives and Progressives only and always co-exist, need each other to persist, and can greatly benefit to optimize their inherent partnership rather than criticize a connected part of themselves.

Progressives experiment, with most failing at least in part. Successful experiments that are broadly adapted into policy become “conserved.” Therefore, conservatives protect progress, and progressives create conservative values.

3 synergistic partnerships to unite Conservatives and Progressives: peace, prosperity, unity in diversity

1. Peace 

Truly progress on a global scale, and conserved in all successful communities, peace is worth all our attention.

Conservatives should be outraged that the US does not engage in endless wars to conserve peace or freedom. Ongoing lie-started and Orwellian-illegal Wars of Aggression require all US military and government to refuse all war orders because there are no lawful orders for obviously unlawful wars, and no other way to conserve Oath and Honor. Those of us working for this area of justice are aware of zero attempts to refute this with, “War law states (a, b, c), so the wars are legal because (d, e, f).” All we receive is easy-to-reveal bullshit.

Progressives should demand an obvious change: arrests to remove .01% apparent War Criminals. This reform is required in the face of tremendous crimes:

Until sufficient synergy among Conservatives and Progressives, we’ll continue to suffer annual .01% killing of millions, harming of billions, and looting of trillions.

2. Prosperity

The US was founded with monetary and banking reforms to reclaim power from British oligarchs.

Conservatives should protect these game-changing ideas documented by many of our most honored Americans. Among them:

Progressives should lobby for the ~$1,000,000 per average US household benefits of monetary reform and public banking.

There is literally nothing more valuable than this liberation.

3. Unity in diversity

Whether religious, spiritual, and/or philosophical, both Conservatives and Progressives must unite to be true to their ideals.

Conservatives who are Christian must embrace that Jesus was a Temple-clearing rebel of both the existing religious “leaders” (foreign and domestic) and vicious empire (foreign with domestic minions). Jesus is perhaps the most powerful example for Conservatives honoring and protecting breakthrough new ideas.

Conservatives also honor and defend American ideals. American Founders were literal revolutionaries defending reneged government promises. If defeated, the Founders would have been declared traitors. This is our American Conservative heritage.

Progressives must reform a .01% rogue state empire in destruction of any philosophical, spiritual, and religious ideals. America upholds unity through diversity, or did, until the destruction of nearly all rights lawfully guaranteed in the US Bill of Rights within the US Constitution, and in Orwellian inversion of limited government.

Progressives must agitate to demand arrests, with those with lawful authority to enact it. An arrest is the lawful action to stop apparent crimes, with the most serious crimes documented here meaning the most serious need for arrests. US military, law enforcement, and all with Oaths to support and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, must take these actions to conserve rule of law.

In just 90 seconds, former US Marine Ken O’Keefe powerfully states how you may choose to voice “very obvious solutions”: arrest the criminal leaders (video starts at 20:51, then finishes this episode of Cross Talk):

‘Conservative’ and ‘Progressive’ drives exist within each and every human being. Honor the natural diversity within one continuum

In teaching social science courses to high school students, these young adults very much appreciate the bridge that this idea provides to connect so-called “Conservatives” and “Progressives” (“Liberal” has been smeared with corporate media, so few choose to identify with that banner). They seem to conclude that some human beings are more experimental, while others prefer to stick to tested and working principles.

Conservatives can, and should, appreciate the experimental because hey, it’s not their time, money, and energy doing the exploring, and Conservatives will benefit from any breakthroughs. Conservatives should never mock the very people responsible for each and every value they hold, as their values were once novel and often radical.

Progressives can, and should, cherish Conservatives for retaining their effective experiments, and doing the routine work required for functioning society. Progressives should thank Conservatives for upholding the values they created. Progressives should never mock their protectors for any lack of vision, as some people must retain that ground already won.

Individuals have each drive within: most of our attention is to routines with whatever’s left over to creative testing. Some people enjoy more time and attention to these conserved routines, while others prefer to minimize those in order to have more time for exploration.

Individually and together, we must embrace our “Conservative” and “Progressive” natures to created synergistic futures more powerful, beautiful, and innovative than we are able to imagine.

    I can agree with nearly all of this but I think we need to try to move away from terms like “liberal” and “conservative” and focus on human issues, like quality of life, making it possible for families to be families, building communities. The range of people who are called or call themselves” conservatives is too broad and too contradictory, and similarly “liberals.” The terms create nothing but confusion, inadvertant and deliberate. By the time you have hired slut henchmen of Wall Street predators like the Clintons calling themselves “progressives,” progressive means nothing. It all collapses in deceit, namecalling, and confusion. Better to stick to facts and concrete issues. Like single payer health care. A decent wage. Decent conditions of employment. Police who don’t kill more people every year than all the police in Europe kill in 20. And so on. Concrete objectives, not terminoogical dodge-ball. (Meaning no disrespect for your work, Carl, which I greatly respect. But thinking about how to best pursue it.)

      I understand your concern, diogenes. That said, there are many millions of Americans clinging to those labels with pride and ignorance of the irony that these two drives only and always co-exist.

      High school students really like the bridge this concept provides, and seem to conclude a continuum is natural with some people being more experimental and others more comfortable with tested routines.

      • diogenes

        Yes, and as long as we help them to cling or try to manipulate their clinging, we compound the problem. We need to simply go around the labels and stick to concrete issues. Like feeding our families and living in decent houses and getting paid decently for decent jobs with decent working conditions and living in safe neighborhoods and having access to decent health care without being pillaged by financial pirates. The people who created the Peoples Party had the right idea. That’s what we need, to advocate for people, for human decency, and end the reign of inhumane greed.

  • RoHa

    Not a bad argument, but this bit is dubious: “Whether religious and/or spiritual,…”

    What about people who are neither religious nor spiritual (whatever that is supposed to mean)? Should not they also unite to be true to their ideals?

    • Carl_Herman

      Ok, I added “philosophical”. Thanks.
