Old and counterproductive.
Constructive criticism is one thing. Bitching and moaning just to prove how smart and independent you are is another. I wish someone would take the time to list all the things that have gone our way in the last 20 years.
We are on the cusp of actually settling in for the long haul...and there are impatient people who are willing to just toss it away, because they started to see the trees instead of the forest. To mix about fifty metaphors.
I completely agree with you, the strides made in the past 20 years are great, but why stop. Hey, I am just in favor of accelerating our pace, but if this is just slowing you down than don't pay any attention to me.
