In this grand design of things you get a B+ just for effort. Where you lost us was on the specifics. As people say, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn't be more true right here. Having said that, permit me tell you what did do the job. The article (parts of it) is certainly quite engaging and this is possibly the reason why I am making the effort in order to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, while I can notice the jumps in logic you make, I am not necessarily confident of how you seem to unite the ideas which inturn make your conclusion. For right now I shall subscribe to your position but wish in the foreseeable future you actually connect your dots much better.
