Let's drive that jive a little more. A modern doctor removing a kidney using 1910 surgical techniques might lose both his patient and his license. But what about the doctor using 2010 surgical techniques to remove a kidney in 2010? Is he more likely to use surgical techniques that have stood the test of time, or is he going to experiment with a new surgical technique every time he removes a kidney? If he does the latter, he really is a modernist doctor. But you do not want to be his patient!
So, please remind me again how new traditional architecture resembles a doctor using 1910 surgical techniques to remove a kidney in 2010.
