I ask everybody with a keyboard and an opinion, "Who is your Leviathan".

Everybody on the internet thinks they can say something, wish something, vote something into being if their meme is virulent enough. I call bullshit on that.

I look at what it actually takes to pull levers, cut steel, lay bricks, stop bad guys, put out fires, pour cement, fly planes, set broken bones, grow crops, tend herds. That's a very different business than retweeting, posting, coding, voting, critiquing cultural productions, socializing concepts, raising awareness, supporting causes. Hard physical skills vs soft verbal skills. Whether or not democratic institutions fail, the former are more important than the latter.
