"Only he who attempts the absurd is capable of achieving the
impossible." -- Miguel de Unamuno

interfering with one who is doing it." -- Anonymous

I'm sympathetic to your position.  I think it's an impossible goal and
one that will never be realized.  That said, I also think it's possible
I may be mistaken, and for that reason I'm not going to attempt to
persuade smart people to stop attempting the absurd.

By all means, you should direct your energies to where you feel they can
do the most good -- but we should also respect their decisions about
where they feel their energies can do the most good.  :)
