Excellent Post by Yglesias on the Progressive Movement
This post by Matthew Yglesias is excellent. It points out that progressives tend to a boom and bust cycle psychologically - periods of high hopes for real change, then depression when those hopes fail. His point is that the better viewpoint is that the work goes on, a little here and there, all the time, and requires a steady commitment of work.
