BTW which is a cop-out. I see two. (1) the cop-out of the status quo
(i.e. those who don't want to relearn) and (2) the cop-out of using
stereo-typing and ad hominem attack against "obsolete people who still
have BMWs" using an "eat the rich, they're just lazy" argument to attack
a group that holds a view one wishes to discredit.
Both are cop-outs, to which particular cop-out did you object?
