The Errant Woodsman

​If you want to critique an idea thoroughly and properly, with an eye towards improving upon it or transcending it, you must first be its faithful student. He who seeks to chop down a tree, in ignorance of the nature of its deep, strong, and embedded roots, will find the task difficult, if not impossible. They will also find, much to their chagrin,  that even if it does topple, that another like unto it, shall spring up in its place, upon the sturdy foundation of those same roots.
