Why do people think you need a giant social movement to search for obscure things?

1995-XXXX GenZ (Civic?)

If we were to go back in time eighty or so years to the 1930s, when the Interbellum Generation/Early G.I.s (born between 1901-13) were equivalent in age to the Millennials of our current decade, is it possible that they would have seemed like a 'rogue' generation back then? I've heard there were comments in the day about the youth of the Roaring Twenties and how pathetic they were that seemed similar to the stuff said about Millennials during the 2010s.

To me, it seems like progress is a bad word with some exceptions but it mainly seems negative. I know it seems stupid to you but to me "progress" means "let's do things that make things worse for people in the name of virtue signaling." or "Let's make things equal by making things worse for specific groups because we think they are privileged." or "Let's make a world where everyone has a low standard of living in order to save the climate." or "Let's all ban specific words, phrases, and thoughts because they go against progress." "Let's ban guns because they are scary and this is progress." "Let's have poor people forced to go on inefficient bus systems that make it harder for them to spend time with their families and exhausted at the end of the day because of progress." "Let scientists grow potential lab meat so that poor people can't afford real meat." "Let scientists screen for types of minds in order to abort them or change them with CRISPR". It's like the more progress there is the less I like it. Screw progress. Progress either means taking away freedoms because of some mass hysteria or trying to create a dystopian world most of the time IMO.
