Change and Progress

Tony Robbins: Change is automatic. Progress is not.

Tony Robbins has said:
Change is automatic. Progress is not.

Bertrand Russell: Change is one thing, progress is another. Change is scientific, progress is ethical; change is indubitable, whereas progress is a matter of controversy.

Bertrand Russell has said (quoted with the image in my LinkedIn essay):
Change is one thing, progress is another. Change is scientific, progress is ethical; change is indubitable, whereas progress is a matter of controversy.
These quotes address the dogma of progress; the belief that progress is inevitable – that we are always progressing. The Whig Theory of History is a theory that history marches onward towards ever higher levels of progress. The theory is misconceived, misguided, and a fallacy!

Misogynism?

Today is Redstockings Day.

Are you a misogynist for not wanting to send women to the front? Are you a misogynist for being a gentleman and walking closest to the road? Are you a misogynist for not wanting your kid to spend his days in a daycare center?
