virus: virtual hierarchy
Fri, 12 Mar 1999 13:45:25 -0500

What's all this worry and rebellion about CoV would-be leaders and tops of the stack and better than thous? Why should anybody get all out of joint over a virtual hierarchy, even if they are on the bottom? If this is based on education and understanding logical fallacies for the purpose of debate and determining reason and rationality for the purpose of mysterious Level 3 mutations of all of the what? That seems like an okay hierarchy to me. The hierarchy has no practical implications for my life, but the function does/might, so WHATEVER.

Being at the bottom of this hierarchy, if indeed I am, doesn't mean I have to sit at the back of the bus, or that I have be last in line at the check out lane to buy macaroni and cheese, or that I am denied personal freedoms (other than those I had in the first place)... BUT OH THE PAYOFF!

I just don't see why it's worth the sweat to worry about the CoV type hierarchy, which exists, but without the any real oppression of the "lower rungs."

Worst case scenario: I learn something.

(Head droops to the right, a stare into the distance, utters, "Wow...." with last breath...)
