“Progressives” understand progress simply as chaos.
It’s transvaluation of all values, endless upheaval, war, revolution, and churning of society for its own sake.
But chaos on its own generates only random change, not progress. And since random change for the worse is much more probable that random change for the better, progressives end up favoring social retrogression and decay.
True progress, on the other hand, is creative advance. This chaos operates within order, both moral and economic. There is a balance between stability and change, wherein destructive chaos is neutralized, while creative chaos is encouraged and thrives.
This balance is achieved most sublimely within laissez-faire capitalism.
