Riddle me this... WHY WOULD YOU WANT to be "conservative"? Why would you be resistant to change? Why would you choose not to be open-minded to the fact that your way may not be the best?
Because change doesn't always mean you are changing to something better. Especially when the reasons for the change are suspect and often hidden from the public.
