“It must be considered that there is nothing more difficult to carry out, nor more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to handle, than to initiate a new order of things. For the reformer has enemies in all those who profit by the old order and only lukewarm defenders in all those who would profit by the new order.” – The Prince by Machiavelli
(Related Thought: This is what “accreditation” is all about – the more people who are certified in something the more they are vested in the on-going credibility of that certification. Think: college degrees.)
