A “movement” implies change, and being “Hareidi” means doing things the way we have always done them (more or less) and not changing — unlike the Modern Orthodox and Religious Zionists, who while staying basically shomer mitsvos make a point of deviating from past practices either for ideological reasons (desire to have a medinah) or laziness (“please can I eat kitniyous and wait only one hour after meat”) or greed (“I never could be a successful banker if I had a beard and pe’os”).
