I've noted before, but it is worth repeating. Progressivism means coercion. People must be forced to do things the elites believe are best, even if the people don't want to because they don't believe it is in their best interests. Examples: pay for abortion and birth control coverage in their insurance policies. Buy insurance. Give up their means of self-defense. Accept and pay taxes to support immigrants. And so on. The list grows as liberal government grows and progressives discover new rights they must force you to pay or and recognize.
