    Classical Progressivism, also known as Paleoprogressivism, is a form of progressivism. Paleoprogressives believe that progress or social justice is defined by removing barriers to human potential by eliminating outdated customs and traditions; as well as advancing technological and scientific progress. Paleoprogressives historically differed on how to achieve these aims. However, most of them historically were supporters of Nationalism, Eugenicism, and Industrialism. While paleoprogressives can therefore embrace identity politics, often as a means to an end (i.e., the racism of Woodrow Wilson or the original feminists), what distinguishes them from modern progressives is the emphasis on diversity and inclusion being inherent goods. So a paleoprogressive would be more willing to accept drug legalization on the grounds it would exterminate the weak, leading to higher in-group potential (and thus social justice), while modern progressives focus on the injustices criminalizing drugs have on minority communities. So the ends might be similar, but the means and the logic behind them are distinct. Classically progressive ideologies include: New Deal Liberalism, Kemalism, and Bull Moose Progressivism. Spencerism is a modern example of paleoprogressivism.

    • Progressive Conservatism - You're one of the closest to me these days, but still a little too traditional for my liking. At least we both love Roosevelt.
