Steven would rather live in a bland Utopian society and could care
less for the greatness of competition and he has little respect for
loyalty. He would like to have little league games where there is no
losers, so nobody's "feelings" get hurt(oh NO!). And EOE so that god
forbid weather or not someone is qualified they must be hired just to
keep a equal balance in the workplace. Hey Steven, we should outlaw
individualism too, God forbid someone think outside the box!(damn

 But as they say "ignorance is bliss" ey Stevie?
