Is it just me or does the political spectrum get in the way of progress?

I find it really laughable as to how liberals can say they are for progress. People say they are for change. Yet they just only ascribe to what the political spectrum tells them to. The political spectrum doesn't really go into that much detail as to why or what to do. It doesn't talk about how to deal with societal ills. It only gives two false solutions to the problems and one middle false solution to all of them. These ideologies of the political spectrum keep thinking about real solutions and force them into fake solutions... as we know the liberals or conservatives in congress really haven't been able to combat societal ills. So why do people stay on this false political spectrum that doesn't really mean anything? Why does the establishment want people to be dumb? Why can't we progress?

Progress to where, to what future?

This is a key issue - you will never see any politician give a view of the future, that is because that they know it is a dark future where men are enslaved.

The spectrum doesn't exist for people to follow it. It's a way of measuring what people believe relative to each other. For example, massive amounts of people are left-leaning. That's why we have aa place for them on the measurement scale, i.e. the liberal area. Same for moderates and conservatives. It'd be inefficient and useless to describe someone's position on every issue when talking about their politics, so we shorten it to 'conservative' or 'liberal' and know we're in the ballpark.

Amagnon-politicians talk about what they want or forsee for the future ALL THE TIME.

Well what American partisan hacks will never figure out that not everybody fits under the Conservative and Liberal umbrellas . Any sensible people out there know this full well and would be well served to avoid any discussions with any person that thinks otherwise . That's all there is to it really .

America has plenty of your 'sensible people'. The people that think everyone is either a Conservative or a Liberal are in the minority and don't have much say in the grand scheme of things.
