Question and answer
Q: what were the key principles of the progressive movement?
A: Many of the core principles of the Progressive Movement focused on the need for efficiency in all areas of society. [ Purification to eliminate waste and corruption was a powerful element.[3] According to historian William Leuchtenburg: The Progressives believed in the Hamiltonian concept of positive government, of a national government directing the destinies of the nation at home and abroad.
They had little but contempt for the strict construction of the Constitution by conservative judges, who would restrict the power of the national government to act against social evils and to extend the blessings of democracy to less favored lands. The real enemy was particularism, state rights, limited government. ]
