This article is excellent. I read a lot of articles by Umair Haque. I have yet to find one that I totally disagree with. This one is one of his best IMO.
The title says it all, and I couldn’t agree more. The last sentence is particularly on point:
After all — if your house was burning down, would you want [to] cry out desperately, as the flames turned into embers, “we have to save the fire!!”?
Umair’s articles could benefit from some copy editing (which I have taken the liberty to do in the above), but that’s a very small criticism.
