Assuming these 3 things...

-Conservatives want to preserve tradition and/or revert to tradition.
-Progressives want to break away from tradition and/or improve on tradition..
-Libertarians want to reduce corruption and restrictions on opportunities.

If at some point, society believes that a large corrupt government is an American tradition,

Would the Libertarians form an alliance with the Progressives to destroy Conservatism?

I would say that those uses of "conservative" and "progressive" is not accurate in a political sense (I'd also argue that "libertarian" is off too, but let's keep this short at first).

Example, someone wants to go back to the Reagan era would be considered a "conservative" as would someone that wants to go back to FDR, and as someone who would want to go back to Clinton (we've heard a lot about "going back to the Clinton tax rates). Obviously the people that want to go back to these three different eras are vastly different and should not be labeled as the same. However, they would all fall under "conservative" by such a definition. Therefore, that definition is inadequate when applied to politics.

What libertarians align with Progressives, aside from many social issues? This is news to me.
