Response to Laxman (Original post)

26. Sometimes a reasonable clear logic is completely

divorced from reality. The premice of the article is sound but it has no resemblance to human nature. If someone wants to live their life as a martyr for change in a conservative stronghold may they be blessed with the disposition of a monk. Living life in a fish bowl is no life for me.

On the other hand, if they can't stand being a monk in a land where politics is leaving them behind surrounded by sub-religious and pernicious open-mindedness, then they had better stop up their ears, cover their eyes and plug their noses as they flee... because facts won't change and people will evolve. They can run but they can't hide.

Everyone just do what you need to do. We'll either be better for it or we'll learn a lesson.
