Those of us who objected, or were unaware, when the decision was made to
adopt systemd, did too little to stop the decision from being made. The power
to overcome resistance to change was stronger.

This is the problem, isn't it? The activists get their way because they
are persistent, mission-driven, and maybe conflicted by outside interests
and thus have goals outside of the best interests of the rest of us.
They have the patience to eke out many little compromises that, when
taken in aggregate later on, achieve their original goal. Meanwhile,
the rest of society is just too busy getting along to notice the mess
until it's too late. Things will eventually sort out, but after how much

Especially when they are getting paid off to perform their sabotage, while
the rest of us still have to support ourselves, and can't devote 8-12 hours
per day to undoing all of Sieverrt & Poetterings & Co's sabotage as quickly as
they are creating it.
