Seldom are both power and truth held in the same hand, so don't mistake meritocracy for empiricism, nor dissent for discord. Because speaking truth to power takes courage, as does power giving ear to truth, and someday one may be your burden. A question posed at those who march to the precipice of faith feels flattened as road to a steamroller; The frustration, altercation, and isolation has made stronger men explode. But stand your ground- they will change course.
