Of course.  Will you help fix the problems?

But if it is true that we must pick one or the other, then there is a
task to be done: picking.  If you don't want to help solve that task,
then it's likely to be unsolved.  Ok, but I think it's rather churlish
to declare that a task is extremely important AND refuse to lift a
finger to work on it.
