I don't assume they want to learn. I'm saying it's better for
all of us if they DO learn. Looking at the big picture.

If you don't learn how to drive, you don't get a license.
Know anyone who can't pass the driver's test? Know anyone
who didn't want to? Same thing. Everyone can learn how to
return a token, even if some of them don't want to. Then
the REST of us are better off because there is a common
knowledge base.

My opinion. I'll assume there's no need to continue, because
neither of us will change our minds!

Anarchism is founded on the observation that since few men are wise
enough to rule themselves, even fewer are wise enough to rule others.
