I'm fascinated by people who want to claim that we don't have to hit bottom just because we're going down the slide.
Every kid knows you can stop on a slide, but it hurts, and one can only do it if the other kids aren't coming right down behind. It seems to me that instead of shouting "we're not there yet", these people should be shouting "STOP!"

For skeptics like Chomsky and selective followers, society is a steel frame building which can not be annihilated by a lesser part of itself.
