Progressivism is a political philosophy in support of social reform via the experts. In the 21st century, a movement that identifies as progressive is a social or political movement that aims to represent the interests of ordinary people through political change and the support of government management by experts. Basically progressives believe they can bring about a utopian government order through the leadership and management of the culture through an educated expert elite.

Progressives are driven a strong belief in the technocratic management of government. The progressive criticism of laissez-faire liberalism arose due to late-19th-century American intellectuals’ envy of the German state theories of government administration and control. The American system of elite, research-centered higher education originated from the German model. During the industrial era of the late 19th century university student went off to Germany for graduate work. This was a common practice for many American intellectuals since they believed German universities were the place to go for higher education. Most of the key figures of the progressive movement received at least part of their education in Germany. During an era when very few Americans attained a higher education, more than 9,000 Americans studied at German universities—nearly 2,000 in 1880 alone.

From their experiences in German classrooms, many progressive intellectuals gained exposure to the country’s model of civil service scholars. These scholars consisted of professors and university-trained experts to whom the German government looked for advice when crafting social, economic, and political policy. Young and impressionable American university student bought into this model of cultural leadership. They believed that they could recreate the German model of expert management and leadership back home in America. These concepts soon became a part of the university belief that human reason could be used to perfect management and leadership of the nation's culture and economy by the "experts."

This ideology has been taken to a global level as leaders who have bought into this worldview seek to establish a new world order. They want to establish a world order in which the government will control all facets of the global economy. They believe they can manage the affairs of the world in order to avoid predicted catastrophes such as climate change, global warming, global cooling or what ever the latest doomsday scenario is being pushed by their media. Following are articles and reading resources to enlighten the reader of their long-term goals at the expense your own personal freedoms.

In The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism, New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio host Glenn Beck argues that the American way of life will not survive the Great Reset and warns us to stop it before it's too late to reverse course.

An international conspiracy between powerful bankers, business leaders, and government officials; closed-door meetings in the Swiss Alps; and calls for a radical transformation of every society on earth—the Great Reset sounds like it is one henchman-with-an-eyepatch away from being the plot for the next James Bond movie.

But the Great Reset is not a work of fiction. It is a highly influential movement among the world’s elite to “reset” the global economy using banks, government programs, and environmental, social, and governance metrics. If they are successful and the Great Reset is finalized, it would put substantially more economic and social power in the hands of large corporations, international institutions, banks, and government officials, including Joe Biden, the United Nations, and many of the members of the World Economic Forum.

In The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism, Glenn Beck uses his trademark blend of humor, storytelling, and detailed analysis to reveal for the first time the unbelievable truth about the Great Reset, tying together nearly two decades of groundbreaking research about authoritarian movements and their efforts to fundamentally transform the United States.

The roadmap to stopping the Great Reset begins with fully understanding what the free peoples of the world are up against, and no resource provides more information about this radical movement than Glenn Beck’s The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism.

Socialists Don’t Sleep is about all the sneaky ways the secular left has pressed Socialism into American politics and life – AND WHY CHRISTIANS ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN STOP IT!

"Socialists Don't Sleep is one of those timely books that just points out the roots of what's gone wrong in America, how we can get our country back on track to what founders envisioned and the Judeo-Christian community that holds the key to America's long-term successes." Gov. Mike Huckabee, New York Times Bestselling author & Host of Huckabee

“Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez when it comes to socialism in America, these two aren't the problem. Per se. They're simply symptoms of the real problems that usher in Socialism: a dysfunctional entitlement-minded society, a propaganda-pushing school system, a decayed culture, a sieve-like border. As Cheryl Chumley points out in Socialists Don't Sleep, we can't root out socialism unless we first address the real problems.” Michael Savage, New York Times Bestselling author & host of The Savage Nation

Socialists Don't Sleep: Christians Must Rise or America Will Fall tells how America has gone from a country of rights coming from God – NOT government – to a country that embraces Socialism – where the US government is now expected to pretty much provide from cradle to the grave. Cheryl K. Chumley, an award-winning journalist and contributing editor to The Washington Times, explains how to return the country to its glory days of God-given, and why Christians, more than any other group, are best equipped to lead the way.

“What is it about the founding principles of America that the secular progressive left would make better? The answer is: Nothing. In her new book, Cheryl Chumley reminds us of those principles and calls on those who still believe in them to engage the failed policies and ideology of Socialism and atheism and to fight back.” Cal Thomas, Nationally-syndicated Conservative Columnist

“If you think socialism will inevitably lose at the polls, think again! As Cheryl shows in Socialists Don't Sleep, the far Left — in both political parties — has been eroding our freedoms for decades. The long-term solution must come from the Judeo-Christian community. If the churches don't rise, America is sunk.” Sam & Kevin Sorbo, Writer-Producer-Director Team for Let There Be Light

“An important book that shows just how close our country is from losing its freedoms — and why the younger generations need to learn truthful history about capitalism, freedom, and socialism.”Will Witt, PragerU Personality

Socialists Don’t Sleep exposes the flawed thinking of the socialist left.” Phil Robertson, New York Times Bestselling author & Star of Duck Dynasty
