    But a Slap in the Face
    By Sean Ripple

    Being able to identify a problem is not enough. One must also know how to correct the identified problem or else be subject to that problem.

    For illustrative purposes, take a malfunctioning stapler. If one would like to bring the stapler back to the land of the functioning, then one must first identify why the stapler is malfunctioning. The clearest way to do this is to compare the malfunctioning stapler to a functioning stapler. By comparing and contrasting the mechanics of each stapler, one may be able to reach an understanding as to why the malfunctioning stapler is acting the way that it is. Yet, reaching this point is not enough to be freed from the problem. One must also be able to correct the problem of the malfunctioning stapler concretely.

    If one lacks this ability to correct the concrete problem, do they not make the sound of one hand clapping?
