The opposition

Colosseum

Opposition to fundamental change will obviously be fierce, but as the popular saying goes “first they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you and then you win”. Which is fantastic, because, in the words of Peter Drucker “disagreement is needed to stimulate the imagination”. Fighting against stronger opponents makes us stronger than fighting against weaker ones.

“There is strong shadow, where there is strong light.”
(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, writer and statesman)

Conserving the status quo means staying where the majority already is. Change means building new majorities. This, incidentally, is a big problem in politics, when politicians prefer to subsidize what is rather than invest in what could be.

Cui bono? To whose good?
