Some say that President Theodore Roosevelt was simultaneously a man ahead of his time and a man of his time. Apparently, he stated that he had "always believed that wise progressivism and wise conservatism go hand in hand". They say that Roosevelt was a progressive conservative.
Progressive conservatism is probably a familiar term to Brits. Living in England, I am probably one of many people who think that we are all conservative in that we want to conserve what is working well for our society and we are all progressive in that we will consider changes and realize them if they are good for our society.
Do you think that progressive conservatism is an ideology worth pursuing in your countries? Or is it too tame an ideology to your liking? Did you (or do you have) a progressive conservative leader in your countries?
Teddy Roosevelt was a unique man and politician. Since his time, no person who is both a conservative and a progressive has ever served has ever been elected to the American presidency. Few ever appeared on the political scene in America since Teddy. Today. mo such creatures exist in the USA.
