    Not to be confused with Lib.png Liberalism.


    Progressivism, also called Cultural Liberalism, is the ideology representing the cultural left-wing. Progressivism believes that heritage that stems from the past is not to be held sacred and rather should be thrown away in favor of what it views as "Societal Progress" (The exact view of which depends on what type of progressivism is held) which usually entails the creation of a culture and social environment that is less strict and conformist and more open and inclusive.

    Progressivism is usually heavily associated with centre-left to left-wing politics, although in theory it can align itself with any economic and civic system as shown by ideologies like Pinkcap.png Pink Capitalism and Kemal.png Kemalism.

    Beliefs

    What is and isn't considered progressive is highly debatable, however, some ideas that are generally regarded as progressive include LGBT+ rights, feminism, multiculturalism, open borders, legalization of abortion, secularism, racial equality, drug decriminalization, religious tolerance, sexual liberation, and more. It is important to note that while all of these ideas are generally regarded as progressive, one does not have to support all of these ideas to be progressive, and conversely, one can support some of these ideas and not generally be regarded as progressive.

    Intersec.png Intersectionality

    Intersectionality is the idea that oppression based on identities mutually enforce each other. For example, they believe that a Black woman might face discrimination from a business that is not distinctly due to her race (because the business does not discriminate against Black men) nor distinctly due to her gender (because the business does not discriminate against white women), but due to a combination of the two factors.

    This concept is criticized through the counter-concept of "Oppression Olympics" in which identities are constantly mashed up to find the single most oppressed individual there is, causing an endless downwards spiral of wokeness. Another criticism of the concept that it is not clear what identities count, with memes about various groups being included as oppressed such as landlords or gamers, although it seems very odd to consider those as "oppressed groups", as landlords benefit from current society and what counts as a gamer is blurry anyway

    Whig Historiography

    While not exclusive to cultural progressivism, Whig historiography is the justification for much of progressive doctrine. Whig historiography sees history as the progression to the point of ever greater equality and liberation or in the progressive sense 'wokeness'. In this view, there is no such thing as a repeated cycles, only obstacles to inevitable progress.

    Personality

    Progressivism can appear rather alien, but is really chillaxed when you get to know him. He doesn't mind it when you ask him for money, as he is pro- Nordmodel.png Nordic Model. He loves weed, but isn't too annoying about it. He likes following trends in social media, especially when it comes to international issues and hangs out with Globalism for that purpose. However, he will be annoyed if there's any issue that doesn't aligned with him and regarded them as "hateful", "bigoted" and "problematic", and willing to seek changes to end such problems.

    How to Draw

    Flag of Progressivism

    Drawing progressivism is extremely easy:

    1. Draw a ball
    2. Color the ball with green
    3. Add the (Preferably light red) eyes, and you're done!
    4. (optional) Add a black umbrella to differentiate it from the libleft quadrant ball.
    Color Name HEX RGB
