So I was finishing up my Candide paper for history and was to the point where I was deciding on a title. After thinking about my main points and the nature of Voltaire's satire, I really wanted to plagiarize Cage's work and call it How to Improve the World: you will only make matters worse. I didn't think my professor would be willing to understand my perfectly legitimate plagiarism, though, so I came up with something else... it wasn't as good.
