Thanks for letting me know you preferences I will do my best to adhere to them. I would like to argue that conflict isn't necessarily the cause of change because you have not specified what you mean by conflict. If you are referring to conflict as the tension between to opposing sides than I completely agree and I would say that conflict is the only source of change. However change and conflict can mean various things, For example change can also be the formation of a mountain which is not caused by conflict, And natural change is a very common thing. So I could argue that the forces of nature are the No. 1 changing force, But on the other hand isn't the tension between the outside natural force and the existing natural material a conflict, Possibly. Your argument is solid and hard to refute, Good job!

Well then technically, Anything we do creates change. Moving our hand creates a change in it's position and velocity. Literally everything you or I do creates change of some sort. So yes, Conflict definitely creates change.

"Conflict is the primary creator of change" This is where I'd disagree.

Any change, It's designed to be open-ended that way so that both sides can play with the definition.

What kind of change are you talking about? (Technological change, Moral change, Governmental change, Etc. . . )
