Did Dr. Paul waste his time?
Maybe, who knows. It's hard to measure the impact of social movements. Either way, though, I'm not worried about it. I still loved Dr. Paul's message whether it was objectively a waste of time for the world is a moot point. Was it a waste of time for you? If so, then feel free to keep wasting your time talking about it.
But hey, I'll give credit where credit's due. The question is not in and of itself an absurdity. Dr. Paul certainly didn't know what the outcome of this would be when he started, so we certainly can't fault him, and if it was a waste of time, at least it was an effort in the right direction. If we all made some kind of effort, starting with ourselves, we have no idea how much better we could make the world. That's because we don't do it.
