Ok, I know I'm not supposed to use the straw man argument in comics, but is it really straw man if it's pretty much word for word what was said?

I mean come on! Change doesn't happen if people don't talk about it first! If you don't discuss an issue and talk through the pros and cons of different solutions, how the hell are you supposed to find a way of contributing that actually works? The "what's the point talking about it" question is probably one of the easiest ways to piss me off when I'm in a political mood. It's like an easy summarisation of the attitude that lets bad things happen - the sort of apathy that lets governments get away with doing all sorts of nasty shit. And if there's one thing that really riles me up, it's people not giving a shit about things that actually make a difference.
