: You're not the only one here who feels passionately about social justice, you know. When you find common ground with someone, you ought to work to achieve it. I, for example, am very sympathetic to much of what you advocate, but instead of working with me, you've chosen to berate me for not sharing absolutely ALL of your convictions. Do you think that's the way to get me to see things your way? Sorry, but that's the way to drive people away, people who are your natural allies, never mind your opponents. Like I said earlier, you better learn who your friends are before you're left playing all alone.

This is a disease that plagues the politically just for some reason, I'll never understand why but I see it at every rally and meeting I've ever attended and it makes me wonder at how easily and why these people choose to simply hand the capitalists the earth and it's people on a plate.
