I used to teach computer programming courses, and whenever I was asked about the correct way to write programs, I would respond with the ending of "In the Neolithic Age":

There are nine and sixty ways
Of constructing tribal lays,
And every single one of them is right!

What is this comment trying to say (under White Man's Burden)? It looks like it is a reply to something that no longer exists.
  • Uh, its full title is "The White Man's Burden: The United States and the Philippine Islands"... If you don't know how the news of the Philippine War was received, read Mark Twain's articles on it. This was neither pretty nor boring. And, seriously, asking Americans to become what they were still a bit proud of throwing out? Of course it stirred everyone and they grandmother, provoking lots of answers immediately. In this context it looks like Troll Fic, probably aimed at both sides of the discussion. See also The last rhyme of True Thomas and Jobson's Amen.
