Could you please make this clearer, if you can? I do not understand it 
fully, but what I understood so far (maybe mistakenly), I am afraid of.

You say no brand new idea has chance to get in, since it is not known 
what it brings in the future? I am kind of person that believes in crazy 
(read: really different) ideas can push things through... but 
nevertheless, what did you mean more exactly by this paragraph?
