  The Ishmael Community: Questions and Answers

The Question (ID Number 463)...

    While I think you point out some legitimate examples from history of people "walking away," you also acknowledge that the "jungle option" no longer exists. If history is any indication, people do not act to change circumstances in civilized societies until those circumstances have become intolerable. I fear your books amount to shouting for the driver to hit the brakes after the car has go off the cliff.

    ...and the response:

    Even if the car has gone off the cliff (which is a tenable opinion but not a certainty), I'd like people to understand WHY it went off the cliff. Even if it comes too late for action, I prefer comprehension to incomprehension.
