'Progressive' ideology is wrecking America [Letter]

Medicine

Rahul Rajkumar and his colleagues from Washington and Annapolis write in this week's "New England journal of Medicine" about their delight in more state control over medicine in Maryland.

It is impressive how powerfully leftism with roots in Marxist thought has gained sway among the elites in Maryland and the federal government. As Europe falls and fails from leftism, our American elites revel in it. It is indeed the most dynamic religion we have in the West today.

History, common sense and our own American revolution have shown the disaster of Obamacare, and that greed for power and control is inherent in the human psyche. It leads always to the degradation of everything it touches.

This is the value system of what is called "progressivism" in Maryland. I and millions of others in America call it shameful, regressive leftism. Let's return to freedom and free markets, bounty and excellence — America, not Moscow.
