I didn't say it's ideal - I said it's happening *anyway* without

If you want something 'ideal', then

* awareness of what the current state actually is, and
* awareness of what is happening anyway

can only help.

Your claim that what is happening *anyway* without intervention is 'not
good' is a very important claim. Now that you know that something 'not good'
is happening, do you think it's important to know that fact?
