I agree. "Rank first" is a bit absolutist; "Rank highly" is more
appropriate, and what I used in later mails in this thread.
Of course, there are cases where only a rare individual will have the
vision to perceive a system which governs many people's lives; a
system which had never before even been recognized as a system; then
such people often devote their lives to convincing other people that
the system really is there and that it aught to be exited from.
