You may have shot a hole in your argument here. If it doesn't matter how
long it takes, then what good is progress?

Ha.ha..Your argument here makes me giggle.. In that case, you shouldn't
mind the system <we're currently living in>! Our current system of
nations, armys, laws, bureaucrats and dictatorships have all evolved to
their current state in a situation you have just advocated!

Curious. Tell me how a small-time operator in 1919, when there was
little or no access to telephones, radio, TV or big-town newspapers,
would find the time take on the herculean task of mounting a public
opinion campaign against Rockefeller? He would surely go out of
business in the process.

P.S. With regard to the rest of your post, I agree.
