At the moment, I'm undecided as to whether "political scientists" or "engineers" pose the greater threat to continued human welfare. I may presently be leaning slightly towards "political scientists", if only for the fact that I'm teaching a Public Administration class, and I find it imaginable that it may be one of these youngsters who will finally end-up pushing The Button.

Of course, it would take an engineer to wire The Button up in the first place, so one might argue that there's a certain co-penetration of follies and even spread of blame to be had.

Kojève, Fukuyama, Hegel and Neitzsche may argue about who will end-up ruling the Universal Homogenous State -- liberals or Marxists, one set of slaves or another -- but I think that all of those represent the long odds. The safe money is on the cockroaches. ^_^
