"The idea of progress is essentially about things getting better, about
the future being better than the past and the present. This hopeful
idea, tied up with assumptions about how it will happen, forms our
shared story of progress – our progress story. It’s natural that humans
should be attracted to a notion like this, as it gives people hope,
satisfaction, a sense of achievement and empowerment. What isn’t so
natural is the way the idea of progress has become so wedded to the idea
of economic growth, fuelled by rampant consumerism."
Good points. Via Glenn Murray.
