Not really a rant
People who die don't get a say on how things should be done. e.g. if you die trying to kill soldin, you don't get to say the living party members don't know how to kill soldin-- you're dead. heh heh.
Human history is the story of complaisance. While disaster is fresh in our memory, we take precautions. But as the memory of disaster recedes, we start to take risks.
