Not sure what you are saying here, Clifton Middleton. Ideas are useless without action. One idea put in action can start a series of other actions, but to result in changing everything is a tall order.
In government, especially in our current contentious government, one idea making significant and rapid change is, I believe, impossible. In government, ideas have to be implemented, catch on, change opinions and attitudes, and lead to involved and complicated adjustments to current laws and creation of new ones, a sluggish and arduous process. Legal wheels turn agonizingly slow.
Again, I am unclear about your question so am replying in gross generalities.
