As a former leftist myself, I appreciate Mr. Hawkin's article... even if I'm still not religious. I recognized all of the viewpoints he presented, whether they were displayed by others, or by myself in my leftist days (I refuse to refer to them as "liberals"... they're not. I won't call them progressives... there's nothing about them that ensues "progress". Levin has a good name for them; Utopiasts. Or you can just call them Socialsists or Marxists, whatever works.
