The Paradise Progressive

The Paradise Progressive is an effort to cover, analyze and comment on news affecting the Paradise Coast of Southwest Florida that is overlooked, ignored or avoided by local traditional media. It does this to fulfill the role of a free and independent press in a democratic republic--and never has that role been more important.

As The Washington Post states in its motto: “Democracy dies in darkness.” But we add: “Liberty lives in light.” Our goal is to shine a light as best we can to dispel the darkness.

The Paradise Progressive is not affiliated with any political party or organization. It was begun on Dec. 20, 2018.

Until now The Paradise Progressive was run as a personal blog. But with the growing challenges to democracy in Southwest Florida, funding will help with operations, maintenance and promotion in the critical election year of 2022.

You can see The Paradise Progressive on its website , on its blog page or on its Facebook page .
