"You can't be untouchable, but you can be undefeated".

Over at Slate magazine, William Saletan summed up exactly what I have been trying to say for quite a while now.
In a liquid world, you can't seal off evil. All you can do is fight liquid with liquid. You have to absorb the tragedy, flowing around and through it. You need the strength of a river, not a rock. You need resilience. You can't be untouchable, but you can be undefeated.
You can skip the duct-tape, a crack team of investigators and a realistic view of the world will better serve you.
