Frank says to Howard:
>>Stop trying to save the  world!<<

--When I was in my idealistic early 20's, a lot  of
people told me not to try to save the world. So I
didn't try. Look  what happened! ;)

I'm pretty sure a lot of young idealists were told  the
same thing all through the 80's and 90's. Perhaps
instead of telling  people not to try to save the
world, we should be having a discussion about  what
tools might help the world save itself? I think that's
what you  were telling Howard, in a way, but whenever
someone tells someone else not  to try to save the
world, it makes me wonder if that meme is a  healthy
one that encourages people to focus locally where they
can do  more good, or a toxic one that discourages
people from doing what small  part they could to make
the world better.
