    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 Progress.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 Wilson (Although he was far different from Teddy and extremely racist).

    History

    B.M. Progressivism has it's roots in Monkeyzz-Enlightenment.png Enlightenment 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 United States,[2] 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.

    2. Bernie Sanders' self-described Dsa.png Democratic Socialism could be considered an exception, but his policies more resemble that of modern day Socdem.png Social Democracy, and has often been criticized for mislabeling his ideas, so his movement's classification as socialist is somewhat debatable.
