Why Progressives Hate Steve Bannon’s Cyclical View Of History

Progressives hate Steve Bannon’s fascination with a book that suggests history is cyclical. It undermines a progressive worldview that yearns for utopia.

If you want to make a progressive squirm, tell him that history is cyclical. Whether they realize it or not, progressives borrow their entire worldview from Christianity, and therefore have a fundamentally millenarian view of history. The idea of cycles makes them uncomfortable.
