2 of 20 Customs, Conventions and Permanence

2 of 20 Customs, Conventions and Permanence

Conservatives believe in traditions, customs, conventions and permanence. When those who seek to destroy the old ways succeed they start to create the exact same things that they claimed they didn't need or want, customs, conventions and permanence.

People cannot live in a vacuum and that includes a vacuum of ideas or thought. A world in which there are no  traditions or conventions is a world of constant change. It would be like never sleeping in the same house more than once, or working in the same place more than once or constantly making new friends because you will probably never meet your old friends again. It may be possible to live like that but what a horrible, miserable life it would be, a life, few, if anyone, would choose.
