Progressivism is basically a statist political ideology that seeks to INCREASE government control over society, economic activity, consumer habits, natural resources, individual property, and individual Liberty….for the sake of “the collective.”
(and to the increased benefit of the ruling elite)

“Social Justice” (the redistribution of wealth), political “correctness”, the abolishment of Judeo-Christian values and morality—and the advancement of the Nanny-State—are all elements of Progressivism. Social Engineering and Human Re-Engineering are “Progressive” concepts as well.
The Progressive Movement is embraced by Liberal Intellectuals (Cultural Marxists), Hipsters, Moral Relativists (Social Anarchists), “Enviro-tarians“, Fabian Socialists, “World Citizens“… and power-hungry politicians.
Progressives see themselves as being wiser, nobler, and “more enlightened” than the average “unevolved” human. They seek to use government as a coercive tool to implement their Utopian vision of a world “collective”—ruled by a single governing elite.
