One of the enduring aspects of traditionalism is predictability. It's precisely this part of change that will annoy a conservative who finds it so painful to adjust to new things. Predictability can bring comfort to those whose elasticity in life is stretched to its limits or whose energy is beginning to wane. In itself I don't see it as a problem.
The difficulty emerges when it becomes a dominant force on the journey. It means we have traveled this way before or that the perspective is so similar that we recognise the position. Some things in life will always be predictable. When it dominates our lives, we aren't moving forward.
Joel 3:9 (MSG)
9 Announce this to the godless nations: Prepare for battle! Soldiers at attention! Present arms! Advance!
