"Progressive" is not an iconic moniker for a sectarian perspective, "Progressive" is the continuity of the Universe to move from crude toward subtle, a momentum innate in and substantially exalted through the sublimity of human evolution.
This is the Progressive Utilization Theory, for flourishing the wellbeing and happiness of all, in every realm of life. Explore this magnanimous paradigm through the dedicated postings below and the menu and links to your right.

CIA Head Sworn In On Draft Constitution WITHOUT Bill of Rights
A draft which doesn’t even begin with the famous preamble we all know and love:
We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union,establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence,promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America ….
But rather starts with:
We the People of the States of New-Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode-Island and Providence Plantations, Connecticut, New-York, New-Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North-Carolina, South-Carolina and Georgia, do ordain, declare and establish the following Constitution for the Government of Ourselves and our Posterity….
That has a very different tone from the final version of the Constitution. And again, this version has noBill of Rights.
Washington was a brave leader (but a terrible general). More importantly, he was one man … and the whole idea of the Bill of Rights is that the people have inalienable rights – e.g. no deprivation of life, liberty or property without due process of law – which cannot be taken away by any leader … including the president or the head of the CIA.
