10. I like his idea
but he's hopelessly lost in whatever fog the rest of the people are in.

I'm not lost, and I know a day's strike, even if it were the entire country, would do little to wake people up. As he says, "As long as were willing to continue fucking ourselves, why should they have any scruples about telling us to smile during the act?"

I'll just have to wait for more people to grasp how far into hell we've gone.
