Fighting for what is right and just has always been the objective of American progressives. We believe in hope over fear and we don’t allow anybody to rate us in what we trust in: environmentalism and social justice. The ideological battle between the right and the left has always existed, and when progressives have prevailed, we have become a better nation for it.
According to Wikipedia, “Progressiveness in the United States is a broadly based reform movement that reached its height early in the 20th century and is generally considered to be middle class and reformist in nature. It arose as a response to the vast changes brought by modernization, such as the growth of large corporations and railroads, and fears of corruption in American politics.” With this statement, you can clearly understand what we solely believe in and what we are fighting for. The road in combating for our rights is not as easy as it seems, it requires unity and strong will to persuade the community in our goals. We want not just the community but also the government to hear us in what we are trying to fight for.
The advancement of technology does not necessarily means good life and success because there are a lot of disadvantages brought about by innovation. Take a look around you, can you still appreciate the real beauty of nature? Or all you can see are dozens of tall building with wide scape billboards along the road. What happened to the trees? Animals? Grass? Flowers? Can we only see them in mountains? Park? And zoo? What happened to the world that used to be full of colors and movements? This are just among the simple questions that we want people to hear.
We fight for environmentalism which is one of the most precious aspect in every human being. Our source of energy comes from agricultural products and if we don’t take good care of our environment and allow the big businesses to continue cutting trees so they can build town houses, buildings and etc., soon, all of us are going to suffer. Hear the news all over the world, where there is calamity, hunger and poverty? It is all because of human greed that they try to invest on the power of science to create and change the world in the palm of their hands. When will this stop? Do you want your children and your children’s children to suffer the bitterness of life because the present generation was not able to take good care of what they have? Think! And maybe you will find deep within that you are part of what we are fighting for.
