Status Quo is Stupid?

Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.

Nikolai Gogol — Defending Who’s Status Quo?

Status Quo is Stupid?

Inspired by Stephen Hawking (1942–2018)’s quote, “Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.”. The titled responsion is “Status Quo is Stupid?”. What follows is subject to revision, do you have any suggestions?

So I started thinking about the above quote from Stephen Hawking and I thought to my self, what is the implication of that statement? If intelligence is the ability to adapt to change what does maintaining the status quo make us stupid? I realize that my responsion is self-limiting but it makes you think, do people who push for the status quo represent some kind of ignorance? Is there any truth to this statement in light of Hawking’s quote? I would like to know your thoughts and please make sure you relate it back to the meme of our pragmatic Russian Romantic; Nikolai Gogol.
