Goldstein's Voice

You can spend a lot of time picking apart Goldstein's article.  If you look at the comments thread, you'll see that many already have. 
That's what we tend to do - to oppose, to nitpick, to focus on hypocrisies real or imagined, from the given article for from decades past.
We're not interested in solving problems.  We're interested in picking fights.  And that's the problem.
It's been six days and we're all still waiting. Waiting for someone to come. But what if they don't? We have to stop waiting. We need to start figuring things out.
Everyman for himself is not going to work. It's time to start organizing. We need to figure out how we're going to survive here.
 Last week most of us were strangers, but we're all here now. And god knows how long we're going to be here.
But if we can't live together, we're going to die alone.
