Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
A new idea can destroy a nation, a software program, an experiment, a business, just as quickly as rejecting all change. Also, the more you have, the more likely you are to want to preserve what you have, and the less you have to gamble with changes. Age alone dictates that the youth will gamble on change every time, they have nearly nothing to lose, and nearly everything to gain. Older people nearing retirement with a huge nest egg and life investment, they want to see it through to their pot of gold at the end of that long rainbow, they have everything to lose, and very little to gain from change.
Same goes for competition, the new competitor has nearly nothing to lose, they will innovate like no other. The big market players in the industry today, they only want change they can control.
We can go on with lists like this of very practical real life descriptions of how things work in practice.

I was wondering, what restroom is this person supposed to use. If it thinks of its self as a female, wouldn't it just break it's little heart to be told it couldn't use the female facilities. And wouldn't it be alarming to see this goon coming into the men's room wearing a summer dress.
