Change is scary

But the more you have to paddle just to stay where you are, the scarier change is. People who are feeling like their present status is at-risk, contingent, who have to paddle like a son-of-a-bitch, who are convinced the game is zero-sum, are going to dig in their heels. Nothing-to-lose gets you a revolution. Something-to-lose, and feeling like you’re about to lose it, gets you stasis. Things like PPCA and DADT (or a black president), wouldn’t have gone down perfectly smoothly under any circumstances, but tough times are more likely to amplify the chorus of ‘Stop’!
