The Progressive Notion …

Cafe Hayek has a short quote up that would seem to perfectly capture one of the weirder aspect of modern progressivism.

The Progressive notion appears to be that … that if each individual can, on his or her own, choose which offerings of private businesses to accept and which to reject, and all without having to coordinate these choices with other individuals, people are slaves to corporations – but that individuals regain their freedom and dignity only by voting to use government power to regulate businesses, with every individual forced to abide by the ‘will’ of the majority.

As notions go, this one is among the weirdest.
