How do you measure the success of an underground guerrilla movement against The Man? Is it better to work secret mischief in perpetuity, or is there value in a loud, disruptive, but potentially self-destructive act if it draws attention to your cause and the truth is set free? In other words, is it better to be a reactant or a catalyst? Does it matter if your recipe for social change is exothermic or endothermic? How does activation energy fit into this awkward metaphor?

And speaking of The Man, there is a particularly nefarious character who gets talked about a lot in this story, and you may have been wondering, "When are we going to meet this villain?" This chapter will not disappoint.
