Whether or not I will stumble upon some golden formula, or theory that can be expressed heuristically as a formula, is one thing. Whether or not one can is another.

It's true that @p you are argumentative recently and @l you are a windup merchant as everybody knows
it's a beautiful combo, breathtaking, but don't fall out please

Honestly, I'm telling you because no one else will. You're actually being a dick. You were a dick to Shiels. You were a dick to Leo. You were a dick to constant escape. You were a dick to Barty. And this is all in the last few days! It's fucking unbelievable. It's really really bad.

There's never any lightness of touch or humour to it. It's just outright nasty, horrible abuse! Vicious, mean spirited, ugly stuff.

By abdicating part of our sense of agency to the forces that led to capitalism, and dedicating the other part of our agency to reevaluating what is worth pursuing in light of our current situation, we might be able to sidestep an irrevocably bleak future.
that's a solid mission statement

it's not something I"m particularly interested, but it's a reasonable argument

Im not sure how well I'm expressing this, but despite all my renunciations of the language of hope and hopelessness, I have a very tangible hope, or faith, that things will be alright. Just trying to embody the right forces in the ensemble - which, believe it or not, might be what it all boils down to.

clearly we're not going to get anywhere, so I'll leave these other guys to it if they want to productively discuss something

I 100% stick by everything I said
