It is exactly the opposite of what its stated goals are. To begin, progressivism is NOT about moving forward as a means of improving the human condition. What it actually entails the silencing of dissent, much like any authoritarian regime, in favor of the stated official narrative. Progressivism favors an unrealistic utopian view of the world, enforced with a massive centralized government (The USA for now, a world government in the future) enforcing their believes over a realist view of the world in which individuals liberty and independence from government is paramount. There is much more but I don't have the time right now to write it all up and I fear it would be a wasted effort regardless. I am sure there are others here on this forum that will be more than willing to detail all the wrongs that a progressive ideology entails in a freedom-loving society. Regardless, I oppose all of their machinations to enslave America to the government.
