This is why I have a strong hatred of all "-isms". No Ideology has all the answers, and seldom does the truth lies at any of the extreme positions that "-isms" want to take.

The only true working society is one that is a mixture of ideals, that looks at a problem and solves with the best solution, not the one that their particular brand of "-ism" demands.

And this means that you need people from all walks of life, even those that you vehemently disagree with most of the time, because on occasion, their ideas will be the ones that fit a particular problem, and if you have brow beaten and chased them away, then you no longer have that resource when you need it later.

It must be fun to lead a life completely unburdened by reality. -- JayUtah
I am not able to rightly apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question. -- Charles Babbage (1791-1871)
