“Progressives found a much more active role for government in overseeing civil society, regulating the economy and redistributing wealth …”

“To ensure that all citizens possess all they need to attain happiness, government must create an environment in which all possess the same advantages, despite the fact that this requires government to interfere with the natural rights the founders sought to preserve …”
