Levin: Americanism vs. Progressivism -- What Does That Mean?

By Rick Pearcey • June 28, 2017, 11:19 AM

Jordan Schachtel writes at CR:

Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin started his radio show Tuesday explaining the motives behind his latest book, Rediscovering Americanism, and the dichotomies explored within it.

"Throughout Rediscovering Americanism you'll see these dichotomies. You'll see these opposites," he explained.

"Americanism versus progressivism. What does that mean? It means constitutionalism versus centralism. It means individualism versus conformity."

"It's about private property versus collectivism," Levin also said, according to Schachtel. "Prosperity versus redistribution. Separation of powers versus the administrative state. Eternal universal truths versus ideological social engineering.

"Stability versus constant transformation. Real science versus social science. The rights of man versus the power of government. An eternal moral order versus situational ethics. Liberty versus growing authoritarianism. Education versus indoctrination. The civil society versus the federal leviathan."
