One of my favorite songs when I was a kid was the Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again." The ending of the song speaks to my passion to foster a different paradigm. While I loved the song, what I disagreed with was the passive ending:

"That's not ok," was my response. In fact, the submissiveness of "meet the new boss, same as the old boss," or, as they say in West Virginia, "same sh*t different day" really got my goat.
