Progressive (vs. Conservative) errors on history...

The "Progressive" always has a (strong) lean against the past, seeing Progress as something to be pursued and/or something that naturally occurs. As "conservatives" (in the strict sense of the term) are tempted to elevate the past and diminish the present, Progressives are tempted to diminish the past and inflate the present.

Aside from the truthfulness of either, these approaches to history and worldview have some troubling ethical and practical implications.
