I’m curious what Dr Martin Luther King, Jr would have though about this quote in his time, given his relentless fight to change the existing reality of discrimination in America.  That said, one could argue he fought to build a new system.  Still seems fitting for today.

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.  To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.

~Richard Buckminster Fuller
