The generalization I believe in fallsfall

"Equal opportunity is not the same as equal outcome."

I do believe that, and I think it fits in well with what you've written -- and written so very well. It's almost the only generalization I believe in, and it fits a multitude of situations.

In this case, opportunities are not equal: some people have access to better tools for recovery than others. Any two people who have access to similar (or even identical) tools will likely have different outcomes. Access, in this case, is pretty equivalent to opportunity. But again, equal opportunity is not the same as equality of outcome.

Yes, some people can get better. I'll even go so far as to say that most people, given free access to optimal treatment tools, have a very good chance of getting better.

And falls? Thank you very, very much for writing this. I truly hope it has what I believe to be the effect you desired -- an effect which I, too, desire. Great job.
