If you have read 'The Hobbit' by JRR Tolkein, then you know how the wizzard Gandalf got a hobbbit and 12 dwarves invited into the home of a rather unfriendly bear, Beorn. Gandalf had them arrive in pairs a few minutes apart until the whole group was inside.

It will be years before our culture is ready for the next step and years before they are ready for the step after that. The progressives who wanted everything at once were going to get nothing for their demands. This is good. It's not final.
