The Progress Delusion

The world has been a mess for a long time is some people’s excuse. The world will always be a mess, is the other people’s excuse. The world may always be a mess, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t strive to make it a little less messy. One thing is clear: What we are doing isn’t working and we need a new approach. For too long we have been under the spell of the progress delusion. The progress delusion is the misguided belief that change and progress are the same thing. All change is not progress. What is progress? Improving the well-being of human beings. What is the purpose of progress? Human flourishing. but not everyone who proposes progress has human flourishing as their goal. Some are more interested in personal achievement, political power, and economic gain than they are in bringing about the most good for the most people.
