Rule 6 — Attitude Towards Political Innovation
G.R. Taylor's Rules of Matrism/Patrism Explained

Patrists resent innovation
Edmund Burke made it clear that innovation is not reform but is change (see The Spirit Of Innovation from "Reflections On The Revolution In France), which confuses and undermines the demands of duty. So it is a threat to social order and is resented by dutiful citizens.

But the self-indulgent enjoy novelty and are unconcerned about its social impact, so they welcome innovation.
