Progressive Societies Are Not Really All That Liberal
Iceland has a pretty progressive society by all accounts yet they are planning a pretty illiberal law. Color me unsurprised, progressive societies are terribly illiberal by virtue of the tenant equalism. You can't have a free society when everyone is supposed to be the same not only under the law, which is a tenant of real liberalism, but economically and socially as well. Because in a free society some individuals are going to do better than others and any attempt to try and erase this reality requires the dismantling of a free society.
