What do you think of this quote?
The most dangerous sentence in any language is: "We've always done things this way." The most mature thing we can do is admit that a brilliant plan from the past is no longer a great idea because things have changed. What was true ten years ago, last year, or even yesterday, may not be true today. Everything is subject to time, place, and circumstance, so always reevaluate.
I don't entirely agree with this quote(particularly the "most mature thing" line), but I'm sure there's come a point in everyone's time where you've questioned things and wonder why the hell we still do it? This especially applies to religion and even parts of the Constitution which people defend without question(and usually for their agendas of course).
So do you consider yourself a traditionalist who likes to keep things the way they are, or do you like to change things because it no longer feels relevant or makes sense now vs 20 years ago(due to social change, etc)?
