53. Advances throughout history take time
for example it took us thousands of years to get to our current technical level and that only really started up in the 18th century then there is the whole issue with how long it took to implement laws abolishing segregation yet slavery in our country had been abolished fully in our nation after the civil war.
Now it would be great if things like DADT being abolished as well as equal rights to gay couples happened faster but things like this do not happen overnight, it takes time for the public to accept them but once they do then we advance on to the next thing to make our nation better for everyone.
