How’s that change working out?

I really don’t like politics. To me politics is equivalent with selling snake oil. And recently as I was reading some proverbs I came across this one and reminded me why I didn’t buy into the fluff of the 2008 Presidential election cycle:

21 My son, fear the LORD and the king;
Do not associate with those who are given to change,
22 For their calamity will rise suddenly,
And who knows the ruin that comes from both of them?   Proverbs 24:21-22

There are several fallacies that I’ve learned over my years with the proposition that all we need to do is change.

Fallacy #1 – Change is better than perseverance and endurance

Fallacy #2 – Change is without risk or negative consequence

Fallacy #3 – Change is better than where we are today

Fallacy #4 – The change to state is “good” and the current situation is “bad”

Fallacy #5 – Principles don’t matter, all we need is a healthy dose of change

Make no mistake that there are times when change is necessary and required. However, a Progressive mentality that constant change is required to “advance” and improve ignores basic intuition that looking before leaping really does work out for the better.
