Quick analogy for you.
Let's say you're unfortunate enough to fall into a river. No matter how good a swimmer you are, or if you did lifesaving as a kid, you're being swept out to sea. Someone walks past. They can:
A: walk on by.
B: pontificate on perhaps funding better railings on the riverbank, or swimming lessons, or whether you're worth saving.
C: get you out of the water.
By all means have the debate in option B - but first of all, get the person out of the river.
