"Just because something is traditional is no reason to do it, of course"

Appeal to Tradition.jpg

You know who doesn’t fall to the Appeal to Tradition otherwise known as argumentum ad antiquitatem?  Young humans.

You very rarely hear them saying “But that’s the way it’s always been done”.

In just the way that we all should do more often, they are easily capable of questioning why something is the way it is, and even more open to suggesting we change it. There’s no attachment because everything is new to them.

What thoughts or beliefs are you clinging to that might be harmful to you, your community, our world?
