As mentioned in a previous post, progressives are sometimes labelled “collectivists.” This is meant to tar them as communists. The implication that progressives want government to own and control everything is false and unacceptable.
How should Framologists reply? How about:
Using that word is namecalling, a form of bullying. That’s got to stop. Progressives do believe in working together to solve community problems. We also believe in strong government whose wise oversight helps create trust between businesses and customers. We believe that government should protect citizens from abuse and neglect by unscrupulous businesses.
How do you think progressives should reply when called collectivists?
