    I don't believe ideas "want" to do anything. It's like saying gold and
    silver "want" to become money. The way people react to these things can be
    good or bad, but that is not the fault of the gold or silver. It's what
    people use them for that makes them anything other than the dirt under our
    feet. Ideas are the same. They just lie there and wait for people to pick
    them up. What people do with them is a function of each person rather than
    the idea itself.
