If you read what the left advocates, they are calling more and more for an administrative government. Administrative governments are tyrannical governments. This would in no way be a progressive move for the United States but a regressive move to the days when the people had nothing to say about who enacted laws that affected their lives.
This is what was so unique about the American Revolution. The Americans said we are done with bureaucrats telling us how we must live. They said, we the people will in fact have control over those who are given the power to make laws that affect us.
The Democrat party or the progressives (which is also collectivist) have openly opposed this concept of the people having control over the laws that are made and have been moving toward an administrative state since 1900.
An administrative government is a government where the experts, the bureaucrats, the technocrats, or those who have all been indoctrinated in the same schools and in the same ideology are put into positions in the government and make regulations and proclamations that over time become accepted as laws. We have moved even farther down the road to tyranny now with congress agreeing with having an administrative government by passing a law in theory and then telling the different agencies to draft the appropriate rules for the law.
When Nancy Pelosi said in regard to Obamacare that we would have to pass the law to learn what is in it, she was speaking literally. The law was drafted as are so many laws today where the congress passes an idea and has the agencies write the details. For instance, that all employers would have to provide contraceptives for their employees was not in the law but was in a regulation written by some unknown administrative person or persons.
This relieves congress from doing their jobs and allows them to operate as pontificators who only have to deal in broad generalities. More importantly, it removes the people from their rightful position of having direct control over those who pass the laws under which they must live.
In addition, congress has removed themselves from direct responsibility for laws also by having removed themselves from the process of lawmaking by abdicating their power to the judicial branch as well as the administrative agencies. For instance, an honest look at Roe v Wade must bring anyone to the constitutional conclusion that the Supreme Court greatly exceeded their constitutional authority. They had no constitutional authority to create such a law and should have passed the issue back to congress and told congress to do their duty and make a law allowing the murder of babies or reject the law.
To believe we are a nation where the people elect those who make the laws is a fallacy. The left believes this is the best way to run a country. The left believes that people are incapable of governing themselves and must be told how to live their lives and how to think by bureaucrats, technocrats, and experts. We have no better example than the current example of people being told they have to stay home, what jobs are essential, and how they are to dress and act. This my friend is tyranny. Tyranny is what collectivists have always advocated and since Democrats are collectivists, it follows that Democrats are advocating for tyranny.
