Zealots, in a display of very human behavior,
will defend the institution against change
because change is viewed as a heresy
against established beliefs.
All institutions are destined to become obsolete.
It is a natural process.
Even if they have become corrupt, irrelevant or
dominated by special interest agendas,
even if they are no longer needed
or have strayed from their original mission,
the institutions of government tend to survive.
Until there is a revolution.
