There is the first order of ignorance, in that they are in the largest market on the face of the earth that offers "Not being a cog" in one of the cheapest, most obtainable ways of all industrialized nations, yeah, I'd have to say they likely aren't thinking. You can stop being a cog today. Submit resignation. Fill out your SOS paperwork. Send in with a small check. You are working for yourself. For most industries, you can start selling your valuable goods and services, within a few days.
So they are protesting that? Quite the cunning plan.
Now, second order ignorance is the realization that no matter who you think you work for, you are NATURES BITCH. Yes, you may have no boss, but you still have to serve a customer! You cannot escape the necessity that earning money in most cases, involves doing what someone else wants, i.e. a cog. We're all natures cog, life, death, fertilization....

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
