Traditions are good and important. They are more than a collection of unwritten rules that you must follow if you belong to some culture. They are the memory of a culture.
Traditions are enforced “automatically” or by “nature itself”. Many corporations act as carriers of traditions, but none of them is a unique actor. Unlike laws (written rules controlled and enforced by a government) they have no unique corporation that represents them.
These observations can lead humans to believe that traditions are divine, made by God. But I don’t agree with this. Traditions are made by humans, not by God. No tradition is eternal. (TODO: give arguments)
While traditions can last much longer than human-made laws, they are not static. (TODO: give examples)
