Thanks for the psycho-political assessment.
I'm no social engineer like Lenin or the Rockefellers, I just think it's
worth proving a point when I see someone in denial. Basically this
social change is already underway (what, a lady doctor? I couldn't
possibly...), there's no fighting for me to do. I try to direct my
political energies elsewhere.
What you object to, it seems, is that my opinion is that the world
isn't perfect and that my ethics lead me to prefer to improve the
world than to resign myself to injustice.
Since you seem to like the world the way it is, it appears that
you would like anyone who points out a problem with it to go
away and leave you to enjoy your privileged position unmolested.
