Begging to Differ with Similarity Accounts of Counterfactuals

Widespread agreement among philosophers on a given topic is rare. However, it is enjoyed by similarity accounts of counterfactuals. Roughly, they say that the counterfactual "if p were the case, q would be the case" is true if at the nearest pworlds, q is true. I disagree with such accounts, for many reasons.
