Social regressivism is a political position which sees social progress as a bad thing, and wants to return to some earlier time (usually imaginary) when its values were reflected by society at large.

Social regressives (SRs) sometimes identify as "[social] conservatives", but this is mainly to make their viewpoint seem more palatable. They differ from social stagnationists in that the latter have a view of society that may have been realistic within the past generation or so, whereas the society that regressives see as ideal is largely a mythology.
