I think *coherence* underlies all subjects and some people become coherent and many of them go on and recognize the coherence and some of them go further and study the coherence. The majority of reformists though are not in, nor operate in, any of those groups. Why? Because coherence implies innate ability.
I think we used to teach it for its coherence but now teach it in spite of it. I think parents like us bring coherence back for our children, even if we can't change society.
