Go read that essay I wrote. I refuse to engage in a discussion with you
until you sober up and stop trying to reduce a complex situation to
facile sound-bites.

Complex problems (and there's a HELL of a lot more to this than "a man
chasing you with a bloody axe" -- clue: the axe-wielders are DEAD)
usually require complex solutions.
