Maybe If We All Wear The Right Shade Of Green

Don't misunderstand, there's nothing wrong with displays of solidarity, but I find much of the chest thumping to be akin to a McCainiac worldview. It's always about us, and if only we show enough will to do an undefined something, then the ponies will appear. It isn't about us, there's little we can actually do, and the things we are tempted to do because we imagine we Must Do Something will be catastrophically counterproductive.
