I still consider myself a liberal, but I am not a progressive. I doubt history takes a side or has any discernible purpose. I view notions of collective guilt and redemption with deep suspicion. And I refuse to progress beyond liberal values, like freedom of speech.

At the same time, I am still something of a social democrat. So, I am not sure I have a political home in contemporary America.
