    Don’t you mean How To Run a Useless Government? :)

    (I don’t agree with the premise, clearly. Emotion is fine, but the emotional content of an argument has little to do with its validity.)

  2. Your facts can be astoundingly correct, but if you can’t present them in a way that touches people, you won’t change their behaviour. Compare the impact of years of hockey stick graphs and environmental science dorks to An Inconvenient Truth.

    It’s nothing to do with being right or wrong, it’s about the effectiveness of the communication.
