Stowe on Context:
But today context holds its sway, and I am looking down, below the basket on the blimp, and I see the boiling ocean of despair, hate, and war, below; down where I do not want to go, where I do not want to look. And I wonder, does context hold us up, or will context pull us down? Can we skate free above this bubbling turmoil, can we show a way free of hate and conflict: or am I simply delusional in the face of entrenched and unassailable hatred and rancor? Is the Web an escapist enclave or the hope for humanity.
