Letter to the Editor

Communist plot

Paso RoblesFebruary 5, 2014 

Mr. Mike Morgan has selectively placed an edited definition of progressive in his recent letter. Yet, it appears he left out the most important part. The root word for progressive is progress.

Are we to assume from the tenor of Mr. Morgan’s letter that any form of progress always leads to communism, as he so aptly states? Unless we missed something, the USSR fell, in part, due to the tyranny of communism. We guess his letter’s point was to drag out that old canard that any movement toward progress is nothing more than a secretly disguised communist plot to enslave us all.
