come to a conclusion ( the public ) about anything. We have
voluntarily agreed to let an invisible government
sift the data and high-spot the outstanding issues so
that our field of choice shall be narrowed to practical

favorite essayist, or merely prevailing opinion, we
accept a standardized code of social conduct to which
we conform most of the time.
