I was thinking about personal style recently...to me, personal style is a reflection of the individual; it is a form of expression and a nonverbal communication to the world. That said, if our style becomes consistently the same, does that mean we are no longer progressing? If we claim that our style reflects us, then shouldn't it be in constant evolution because shouldn't we be in constant growth? Does this mean that personal style is not a state of being but rather a process? Can we describe our style in adjectives or should we be using verbs?
Change as reform was intended to preserve and improve the basic instructions of the state. Change as innovation was destructive as a radical departure from the past and the substitution of existing institutions of the state with potentially dangerous experiments.
