Who says there's no objectivity to it? Just not the sort of objectivity that you like, apparently.

Who is "shotgunning"? What do you mean by that? If you believe yourself to be objective, then you don't have to write in metaphors.

Do not confuse "objective" with "deterministic" or "fatalistic." Do not confuse objectivity with linear causality. Start thinking about complex systems and models, and how they operate.
My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world. Jack Layton, "Letter to Canadians"
