People use progressive to mean nice, or, in the American context, small l liberal.

I think of the Nazis and the Communists as being extremely progressive. Just what that means I'm not sure.....possibly only that they wished to change things and went about it.

I've not had an opportunity to read the article.
Some time ago I read Michael Burleigh's "Death and Deliverance: Euthanasia in Germany 1900-1945". Burleigh's books are interesting in that they are written from a conventional (Burkean) conservative perspective. The best histories I have read come from this angle and reflect how traditional political categories have changed over time. The loudest protestations about the moral deformities of recent politics have come from old fashioned conservatives feeling ethical disgust.
