Set forth below is the text of a comment that was recently posted to another blog entry at this site:
“This matter is settled. There is no valuations adjustment in those studies. ”
Absolutely — to both statements. It is so difficult to find anything either tangible or truthful in your painfully long screeds, so it’s worth pointing out such tiny nuggets, whenever they can be found.
Rob, for the thousandth time, let me try to gently nudge you towards sanity, and perhaps even a fruitful future:
Once, long ago, steam engines ruled the earth for train locomotion. While that was underway, there came along diesel/electric power. Let us pretend you alone had the franchise for diesel electric at that moment in history. You alone thought it up, you designed it, you built a working prototype, you perhaps even patented it. Perhaps you felt, with the strength of a religious zealot, that your way — the diesel/electric way — was surely the way of the future, dooming steam to become the relic we now know it to be.
Question: would a workable way to promote it, to foster the transition, to encourage adoption be more likely to be:
a) An attack on steam as unscientific, ungodly, an evil con job, a 100% unworkable method that could never transport a single passenger or package to anywhere (though people used it every day for decades with apparently wonderful and expected results), a method promoted by nasty bigoted horrible people bent on destruction, who were harassing and threatening you, a smelly approach that needed to be buried 100 feet underground… etc, etc, etc,
b) To outline the workings of diesel/electric with specificity, clarity, and brevity. To then to illustrate it’s function by using it yourself in demonstration. To develop and then promote early adopters who had similar results to your own. To focus solely and exclusively on YOUR approach, on IT’S benefits, via POSITIVE-minded and directed activities?
To be even briefer still: Why not put down your anger, your pain, and your raging ego, and instead simply try to focus on learning truth and then (if you feel the need) promoting that truth; instead of dedicating all of your energies into attacking others, and what THEY may or may not chose to do with their own freedoms and ideas?
Briefer still: If your ideas had merit, they would be adopted of their own accord.
