Nobody knows what they're talking about.
Or, they know what they're talking
about only because they made it up.
Judging from the noise and heat,
you might think these people
really believe they affect outcomes.
You might even think
the politicians to whom they're
loyal are loyal to them!
These people arguing
are like watchdogs barking
and growling, guarding
a piece of turf no one sees.
are imaginative enterprises.
--Hans Ostrom, 2012
