Think outside the box to reform the box
Revolutionaries usually have no interest in the box or in reforming the box, they think they can think better than thousands of generations of people who created the traditional boxes.
I think the overused term "think outside the box" was incomplete and should be "think outside the box to reform the box."
Most of our traditions were established before the Darwinian evolution was discovered, and conservatives have been rightly wary of Darwin being used by revolutionaries. But the neo-Darwinism of the science of sociobiology has found human nature and the biological origin of most of our social behavior to mainly follow the traditional ways of human nature.
As defined here often, the science of sociobiology has found human nature to be kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual, marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, among other things, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection. Darwin thought outside the box but his findings can reform the box.
The reality of evolution, sociobiology, and tradition, point toward the political/cultural solution of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. It is a conservative transformation---not revolution---that is coming, eventually, which will bring about an ethnopluralism with different ethnic groups politically and culturally conducting themselves the way they want to in their own states, even within our Democratic Republic, perhaps with only a few amendments to the constitutional separation of powers and states.
