"The greatest thing in style is to have a command of metaphor."  Aristotle

I didn't get many responses to my last post about creating a metaphor for progressive and conservative values.  Come on progressives, be more imaginative. Let's make creativity a progressive value.   I quite enjoy hearing and seeing the metaphors.   When I individually sit down and ask progressives for a metaphor, after a little prodding,  they always come up with great metaphors.  Here are some more.

Progressive Values are like:

Herman Blackmon -  Evolution

If I were able to construct a metaphor, it would not be a static one, it would be something that  would be changing and enduring and not seasonal, like human evolution, it's evolutionary in it's essence.

It's a trek towards..., by definition,  it's movement towards something in the future. Hopefully if you move and evolve, you get smarter and get wiser, more humane, and you become more civilized.  You hopefully hone the capacity to love  and interact and that kind of thing.

So, it would have to be evolution. Evolution is progressive.



Diane Strack -  Mother Earth

You can equate progressive values with Mother Earth in a way.  That comes to my mind, because the earth as it should be if it’s not eroded by wind or rain or something, is fertile and allows all things to grow, however, that are capable of growing.  And to me that’s what liberal values are.  It encourages people to be what they are capable of being.  You know, be your best self.
