~The Status Quo~

The status quo is the current state of things. Status quo is Latin for “existing state.” When we talk about the status quo, however, we often mean it in a slightly low toned way. When people want to maintain the status quo, they are often resistant to progress. If you run for mayor of your town and come in to office with all sorts of new ideas, people may resent you for disrupting the status quo for example.
