Do you have any suggestions for redefining progress?
1.positive development: development, usually of a gradual kind, toward achieving a goal or reaching a higher standard
2.advance of human society: the general advance of human society and industry over time toward a state of greater civilization
3.motion toward something: movement forward or onward
These are some of the definitions we have but it seems that we focus solely on the “more”. More goods, more services, more resource acquisition and use, more buildings, more businesses, more housing, more people. What is the goal? Where is the higher standard?
Do you have any suggestions that might give us a system of measurement for progress that might be more sustainable and less destructive.
