Thanks for your thoughtful comment, as always. I agree that some people are more concerned about their sense of self and place in the hierarchy than they are about their physical wellbeing — which tells you just how strong this drive is and how hard it will be to dismantle a social system built upon it. But, as you said, the only thing to do is to keep talking, keep writing, keep dreaming and just chip away at the elephant. The alternative is not really an option, in my book.
