Some people agree that progress is always good, others disagree that progress is always good. In my opinion, I think progress is always good. There are several reasons for my perspective, as follows.
First, progress makes the society more modern and convenient. Today every country wants to improve its industry and agriculture. Many governments want to use less land to support more population, So they need to improve their technique. If they progress very fast, they will not fall behind the times. It means if our country has the advanced technique, other countries will want to go to study our country. Thus our country can attract more scholars to serve here. Then the economy in our country can form a good circulation. We can use more modern machines if industries have the more advanced technique. Thus it will be more convenient for people in our country.
Second, progress makes people have more choice. Today the society is changing very fast. People need to study more knowledge to survive. People who got a lot of education can have more choice when they find jobs. They can live in many countries because it is more easily for them to survive.
Finally, in nature progress makes living beings survive. Today human beings remake nature, so living beings need to adapt environment. If some animals and plants cannot adapt environment, they will disappear in nature.
However, maybe some progress is not good when it first produce. For example, when people produced the first plane, it did not succeed. But after several generations had improved technique, today planes are very useful for human beings. Taking into account of all factors, I think progress is always good. Progress makes the society more modern and convenient. People can have more choice when they always improve. Living beings can survive in nature if they progress.
