    At the top of a steep hill, there is a gigantic steamroller. There is no driver, and today, mechanics went up the hill to disconnect the brakes, and give it just a small shove. The steamroller will begin its descent and even though no one really knows where and how it will stop, there is every reason to believe a lot of damage will be done. It may crush those who just married (the wrong person), and tomorrow, it may destroy those who make a film the way they want, or teach a delicate subject in their university. There is only one thing that can be done: get out of the way. Between 200,000 and 300,000 will leave. As for the others, maybe they won't notice. By the way, the Oxford dictionary defines descent as a moral, social, or psychological decline into a specified undesirable state.
