Fear of Change, and why it keeps the world in line. The spark of revolution is implanted in the minds of people by people who want change... but not everybody wants change. People want to follow a routine. “So [they] beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” It’s what keeps the world in order, for the most part. Of course, there will always be people that step out of ‘normal’ boundaries. There are a few individuals, that when stepping out of the norm, changed history with inventions.
