A quote taken from Terry Pratchett's "Unseen Academicals".
Think about that.
Having been in a few environments where tradition has been deemed important, I can empathise with this quote. In fact, the hierachy of "people in charge" who have wanted to remain traditional have stamped on any signs of endeavour.
This could be in Karate- where bastardised forms of fighting have been put in sequences and ritualised beyond all recognition oif actual fighting.
