    There's a difference between "improving technologies" and "consumer baubles."  

    And, there's an intrinsic value that is not reducible to anything else, in finding answers to the fundamental questions of existence.  

    Now in point of fact, we have to make the case to the entire society, so there's going to be a certain amount of bauble-pandering that goes on.  But making that the primary focus really is sinking to the lowest common denominator, almost like a form of bribery.

    "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
