    of things society has done for 2000 and we changed those things.  For thousands of years slavery was okay, women were forbidden economic and political power, monarchies were okay, racism was okay, interracial marriage was wrong, and so on.  In informal logic, appeals to what "we've done for thousands of years" are actually an informal fallacy because they provide no reason that things ought to be done this way, but instead say that "we've done them this way so it must be right!"  Many of the ways we've done things have been profoundly wrong.
