        Is any personal belief relevant here? Given our size, we can't
 just assume that basic human nature would be suppressed by
 personal codas and ethics; and thus any major initiative has the onus
 to judge if the perceived benefits are outweighed by people being
 ... human.

        So just saying that people should be perfect is not a very
 effective advocacy for the initiative, in my opinion.

President Reagan has noted that there are too many economic pundits
and forecasters and has decided on an excess prophets tax.
