Status Quo 現狀

"All of us are affected by the status quo. We tend to take for granted the situation as it is, to regard it as the natural state of affairs, especially when it has been shaped by a series of small gradual changes. It is hard to appreciate how great the cumulative effect has been. It takes an effort of the imagination to get outside the existing situation and view it with fresh EyEs. The effort is well worth making. The result is likely to come as a surprise, not to say a shock."
