Status Quo is Stupid?

Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.

- Stephen Hawking (1942-2018)

Nikolai Gogol - Defending Who's Status Quo? Another planksip® Möbius Worth Mentioning

So I started thinking about the above quote from Stephen Hawking and I thought to myself, what is the implication of that statement? If intelligence is the ability to adapt to change what does maintaining the status quo make us stupid? I realize that my responsion is self-limiting but it makes you think, do people who push for the status quo represent some kind of ignorance? Is there any truth to this statement in light of Hawking's quote? I would like to know your thoughts and please make sure you relate it back to the meme of our pragmatic Russian Romantic; Nikolai Gogol.

Responsion is a Correspondence, an ‘Entsprechen’
But can we get no closer to this absolutely determining, all-pervading word? Is Heidegger’s existential ontology expressive only in terms of elusive circularity?
