Tony Markos responds:

Unfortunately, the truth (and therefore healthy
behavior) is much MORE repressed than it was in the
1980's! We have breed a generation of "activity
addicts" to whom things like proper analysis and
scoping out a system ahead of time are dirty words.

The whole mess has become institutionalized; the
"standard" analysis techniques to today are, in
comparision to the progressive techniques of
"yesterday", very retarding of professional growth,
personal growth, and productivity.

But I have fun anyways.
