In the more traditional sense the word "Reactionary" is used to quickly describe those who bend toward an opposition to progress. The assumption being that "Progress" is a steady improvement rather than the ceremonial journey that some one like Catherine the Great might have made through her realm so that she might judge for herself the condition of her subjects.
And for those interested during Catherine's progress through her new territory
of The Crimea there's a rumor that a Prince called Potemkin built mobile
villages that could be moved overnight to new locations along Catherine's
progress so that she could feel a little bit more confident about the condition
of her subjects.
