I just tried to look it up in my dictionary, and appearently I inventeded
it. I meant it to mean "characterized by meliorism."

Meliorism n. [Latin 'melior', better, and '-ism'.]

1. the belief that the world naturally tends to get better and,
especially, that it can be made better by by human effort.
2. the betterment of society by improving people's health, living
conditions, etc.

Sorry about that. -KMO
