Something that is beginning to be a pet peeve of mine

This notion that "progress" is always good, and that "progress" is always inevitable.  There's nothing about the passage of time that is guaranteed in terms of "progress" no matter how "progress" is defined.

The Roman Empire FELL.  The passage of time didn't help the Romans "progress" by any definition.  That would be the case unless destruction is deemed to be "progress".  Under post modernism, maybe it would be.  Post modernism isn't about truth, so the idea of "progress" is merely a word that is useful within a certain context within a certain time.

Put that in your crack pipes and smoke it.
