That's pretty much accurate. A corollary is that many people want to
use this to further their political agenda (usually based around some
notion of how other people should be forced to think), rather than
actually do anything about the problems. Most meta-arguments on this
subject revolve around such lunacy than any real problems (making them
quite irrelevant).
