Generally, you get to escalate your causes to people if you somehow
hold some power over them, for instance by being their employer or 
voting for them.  (It is theoretically possible to simply convince
people by rational argument, but generally people are never as rational
as they think, so it's a lot more effective to just to fork over some
money to have your way.)

Haskell is a boat with many rowers, but no helmsman.
