About The Roots of Progress

The Roots of Progress is a nonprofit dedicated to establishing a new philosophy of progress for the 21st century.

We live in an age that has lost its optimism. The 19th century believed in the power of technology and industry to better humanity. In the 20th century, this belief gave way to skepticism and distrust. We need a new way forward.

Our CEO (currently the only full-time employee) writes essays on the history of technology and the philosophy of progress, and gives talks and interviews on the same. He is working on a book, The Story of Industrial Civilization, and currently hosting a series of monthly talks on the topic.

We are also beginning to sponsor private and public events for the progress community, to be announced.

We have filed for IRS recognition of our status as a 501(c)(3) public educational charity. In the US, donations to such organizations are tax-deductible. The recognition is expected later in 2021, and will be retroactive to our incorporation in May.
