I didn’t say (and have never said) that politics “should be” the last to change. What I said was that it WILL BE the last to change. This is because politicians are by nature conservative. If they get ahead of the electorate, then they don’t get elected. You won’t begin to see changed minds in politics until the minds of the electorate change — this is why politics will be the last to change.
