    Bull Moose Progressivism

    Progressive-Era Progressivism (PEP) retroactively called National Progressivism (NatProg) or Bull Moose Progressivism (BMP) is an economically centre-left ideology prominent in the United States of America between the period of time after the Gilded Age and before the end of the First World War, although starting before the Gilded Age and continuing after the WW1.

    Bull Moose Progressive wants a Square Deal for all citizens (the 3 C's of Conservation of natural resources, Control of corporations, and Consumer protection) as well as a strong military and trust busting.

    Bull Moose Progressive is not too different to modern Prog-u.png Progressivism, as both want welfare programs, improvements for workers rights, and transparency of political campaign contributions, but they differ in several meaningful ways.

    Firstly; its positive attitude towards nationalism and military intervention instead of multicultural internationalism, Secondly; its more positive attitude towards traditional masculinity compared to modern progressivism's more negative attitude and Thirdly; having less of a focus on modern cultural issues due the fact it was prominent in the past.

    Given that American President Theodore Roosevelt was its most famous proponent, NatProg is often used as a stand in or at least modelled on him, which can be seen given his design incorporating Teddy Roosevelt's glasses and cap as well as the optional Big Club. Another famous proponent of a form of NatProg was Woodrow.png Woodrow Wilson, although he was extremely racist and much less imperialist than Teddy.


    Paleoprog.png Paleoprogressivism

    Paleoprogressivism, also known as Classprog.png Classical Progressivism, is a form of Prog-u.png progressivism that focuses on the improvement of society through Technocracy.png scientific, rational, and technological development. It differs from modern progressivism by not prioritizing societal progress through advancing the acceptance of individual identity, but instead prioritizing societal progress through advancing technology, which classical progressives look at as the means through which society can improve itself. Classically progressive ideologies include: FDRismF.png New Deal Liberalism, ClassicalKemalism.png Kemalism, and NatProg.png Bull Moose Progressivism.

    Natprog.png National Progressivism

    National Progressivism is a civically variable, Prgess.png culturally left-wing, and economically variable but usually Leftunity.png left-wing Nation.png nationalist ideology that supports SocialProgressive.png socially progressive ideas while holding strong affinity and loyalty to one's own national identity with an emphasis on Cultural Nationalism.png cultural and EconNat.png economic protectionism.

    Taft.png Taftism

    Taftism is based on the ideas and policies of President and later chief justice, William Howard Taft. Taft was strongly opposed to trusts, and helped to bust even more than Theodore did in 8 years. However Taft was more moderate on other progressive reforms such as, electoral reform, democraticization and a welfare state. Taft was also strongly protectionist and signed the Payne-Aldrich tarrif which was incredibly controversial and was seen by many progressives as an act of corruption.


    B.M. Progressivism has its roots in Monkeyzz-Enlightenment.png Enlightenment Thought philosophy with the development of history as a progression from "barbarism to civilization".

    An egalitarian notion of progressivism, seeing society as an inevitable rise to more and more equality can be traced to the Jack.png Jacobin movement during the French Revolution with thinkers like Marquis Condorcet.

    The evolution of Jacobinism into various socialist movements brought new left-wing influences into American politics as well. While socialist ideology never gained major support in the early 20th century United States, a synthesis of these new notions of equality and the use of the state to achieve social justice emerged in response to the crises of the Civil War and the Gilded Age. These movements eventually coalesced into the Progressive Movement, which envisioned a modern America which would be a bastion of democracy and social justice at home, and a powerful force in the realm of global affairs.
