Comment! Response is appreciated, and helps catalyze thought.
Note: this is a document under revision. Even *I* don't agree with myself all the time, and I expect people to disagree with the points I have to make here. As that happens, I'll do what I can to reconcile their opinions into some compromise, or at least list "dissenting opinions" alongside the major points, and give a decent answer as to why I said what I did.
Read others' comments! There are a *lot* of interesting ones, and some of the threads serve to explain my meaning a bit better than stated here. Not to mention that there are some excellent points of disagreement.
