How about both? They don't have to conflict at all.

Both have an all-or-nothing attitude, and their clashes result in stagnation.

It's time to stop vilifying contrasting philosophies.

  • So essentially your asking if were Conservatives or Liberals..lmao
  • No but seriously in most cases i prefer change, not crazy radical change but little change that occurs slowly so things get jazzed up a little..I think change is good, but i also think Tradition is good aswell, so it really depends.
  • For example issues like politics are at their very best when the two forces of Change and Tradition are working in perfect sync with one another.
  • But for something like Sports even though both change and tradition are important aspects..I prefer change becuase every decade the bar for athletic excellence is raised and new elements have to incorporated into the sport so it progresses...But the core fundamentals of said sport should never change.

horrible question. change can be good or bad. Wanna have a world where the workers get taxed to hell, trannys running around, sharia law every where then obviously change is bad. But good change would be ending slavery. Its really a balance but i take tradition anyday

Of course. But people don't look to change things just for the sake of change. They look to change traditions that are backwards and stupid. People cling to traditions without knowing why. People don't cling to change just to change. Change is brought from necessity.

Oh hell yes, some people most certainly do. I firsthand know people that have gone out of their way to change things in their lives for the sake of changing things in their lives. But you can't isolate and categorize people in why they do things in such a singular way as you suggest. Some people are fully aware of their traditions and take pride in them, including the reasons why they carry on in them. Some people are traditionalists because of habit, and that's it. Some people change due to what becomes popular in their culture or society, and for no other reason than that. Some people change because they can't keep on going if they don't.

There's tons of reasons why someone may keep a tradition or change, and everyone's got their own reasons.

Change without question...

without change no technological advances, or medical advances.

Racism would still be rife, segregation (still happens but at least slavery is abolished),

if i was lying in a wreck with broken legs, arm half torn off and brain injuries i would take Modern advance medicine than traditional treatment EVERYTIME.

I prefer reasonable, considered change with a healthy, but not slavish, respect for tradition.

Change can be about returning to even older ways. Change is not always "progressive" or "necessary".

Depends on what... I want tradition when it comes to LGBT rights and don't want that to change from how it was 50 years ago.

I want change when it comes to how countries work with terrorists and how politicians can manipulate others into doing things
