Progressive Key Features

  • Expands the concept of humanism beyond a concern for human welfare to a concern for the welfare of all living beings
  • Serves the whole expression of human nature – people’s physical, mental and spiritual needs – in a balanced and integrated way
  • Transcends the left-right political spectrum and acknowledges the positive contribution of many social and economic philosophies
  • Supports a distributed network economy, where economic, social and cultural power lies in the hands of local people, rather than transnational corporations or nation-states
  • Redefines the motives for economic activity. Instead of merely maximizing profits, often at the expense of people and planet, the Progressive Party will focus the economy on providing goods and services to meet the changing needs of society.

“When the whole property of this universe has been inherited by all creatures, how then can there be any justification for a system in which someone receives a flow of huge excess, while others die for lack of a handful of grain?”

Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar, Propounder of Progressive Utilization Theory

Noam Chomsky, Professor of Linguistics at MIT, Author, Social Critic

“Alternative visions are crucial at this moment in history. Prout’s co-operative model of economic democracy, based on cardinal human values and sharing of the planet for the welfare of everyone, deserves our serious consideration.”

Leonardo Boff, Founder of Liberation Theology

“Prout is very important for grass roots groups and all who yearn for liberation which starts from economics and opens to the totality of personal and social human existence.”

Hazel Henderson, Economist, Author of "Beyond Globalization"

“Prout is an important contribution to rethinking the disastrous course of the current economy and globalization.”
