Change/conservation

Posted by brenatevi on July 2, 2008

I have the heart of a progressive and the soul of a conservative, or is it the other way around?  Does it really matter?  I’m not certain.  I do know that I understand that progress is very, very important, yet I understand why change is so hard.  The hard part is not selling your soul to the past or the future.  Change just for the sake of changing, or without really thinking about the consequences of the change, could lead down to a very dark place.  Likewise, completely forsaking change, holding on to supposed “past glory” also leads to a dark place.  The funny thing is that those places are very similar, yet they hate each other, as if the similarities are what they find so offensive to each other.  Nothing like looking at the enemy and seeing a mirror.
