Short for "status quo ante bellum" meaning "the state before the war." Used to reinstate property boundaries, ownership, etc after a nation is defeated. Kinda opposite its contemporary meaning, "the way things are now."
In spite of the principle of status quo, West Virginia was not restored as part of Virginia after the (US) Civil War.

The status quo, or any other quo, is a person's business if they want to go with it. Some people want to change everything, and others were already happy without anything having to change for them to be happy.
You don't tell people they can't stick with the status quo, even if you don't agree with the way they do something. You disagree with them, they disagree with you, a d that's it. Not everybody has to agree that wearing a stupid fucking mask everywhere or getting a vaccine is a good idea, since a country where everyone has to agree on everything is not really a free country.
