      from calm reflection.  Are you sure the "getting worked up" isn't in the reaction to it rather than in the writing itself?

        to is the title. It sounds hysterical and alarmist to me, so much so that it's really hard for me to read further. Around here, you need a certain license to resort to bombastic talk--or your pronouncements are so much inflated, worthless currency. The license you need isn't easy to get; it can come from name recognition, or from some erudite, brand-new perspective you lend to an important discussion.

        I've enjoyed your work in the past. But if you don't undeniably have one or the other of these assets, then prepare yourself to be tuned-out.
