    To innovate is not to reform.
    Edmund Burke (1729–1797)

    The science of constructing a commonwealth, or renovating it, or reforming it, is, like every other experimental science, not to be taught a priori. Nor is it a short experience that can instruct us in that practical science, because the real effects of moral causes are not always immediate.
    —Edmund Burke (1729–1797)
