Likewise if liberals are eager for change and new things and novelties while the right embrace tradition and the familiar, that shows why they are so often and so predictably on opposite sides of the fence in many discussions like, for example, immigration.

I don't actually delight in new things or change for the sake of change. I don't oppose traditions for the sake of opposing tradition, I oppose traditions that are at odds with my sense of fairness. A lot of our traditions have intrinsic value. A lot of our traditions build a sense of unity and community. I don't want to destroy those things.  But when traditions and fairness are at odds, tradition has to yield.
