Your choice to make.
As progressives, we believe that history moves in a forward direction, not backwards. Clocks, time and history move forward, to the future, not backwards, to the stale, reactionary, barbaric and ultimately dead past.
Obamacare, whatever its faults, is a move forwards. It is history in action. We on the Left do not believe in the End of History, as written by Fukuyama, who said History ended in 1989. But that’s a pipe dream of the elite. As if the collapse of a wall could render the class war neutered forever.
Class war never ends, humans being humans. There was class war before Marx was born, and there is class war after 1989. Some things will never change. Class war and ultimately history is part of the human condition.
Trying to stop history is like trying to stop clocks. Reactionaries want to stop all the clocks on Earth or make them run backwards. But no matter how hard they try, people will always come around and fix them so they run right again, and then history marches on as usual.
Forwards, the only way history can go.
To the future. To progress.
