Prosophobia: The Fear of Progress

Prosophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of progress.  It is closely related to Tropophobia, the fear of moving or making changes.
A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
