  • agree...it also works with music. Elvis and the Beatles were so crazy and radical and now they are loved by conservatives everywhere and in no ways radical today.

  • I generally agree. I think it means society as a whole is always moving forward, and there are always some people that embrace change and progress while others are more traditional and reluctant to change. Definitions of what it means to be radical or conservative change throughout history. I don't think it's necessarily true of individuals. Personally, I like this quote: "Loyalty to petrified opinions never yet broke a chain or freed a human soul in this world -- and never will." - Mark Twain

  • LOL...probably! The thing is, most people have poor memories and don't want to read, so they have no clue as to what happened in the past and they will never realize that they are actually mimicking some old philosophies. Haha. Funny!

  • I totally agree. Has anyone else noticed that various quotes taken from different times can also be applied to today?

  • Well actually , yes in a way. Jesus was really radical turning the money changers tables over, and then declaring .....

    "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and give to God what is God's!!!" meaning that the silver coin that Caesar minted what was his face and used without taxation, and without interest or borrowing was good, and even Jesus agreed. So He said (Jesus) it was good to give to Caesar what was Caesar's and God what is God's. Both were equally effective. Both were acceptable, as long as their were
    NO MONEY CHANGERS>
    CHANGERS ADDED INTEREST< CHANGERS ADDED TAXATION: CHANGERS ADDED DIVIDENDS as long as you invested in to the system of money changed money. Changed money was invisible control of people's O W N M O N E Y !
