The Only Way To Fight A Bad Idea...

...Or a set of bad ideas, is with a better set of ideas, or a better core idea. Keeping what you feel is crazy from speaking serves only to give the proponents more publicity than they deserve.

The simple fact of the matter is that we must confront crazy, point for point, and refute their spurious claims; difficult though that may be as these people seem to spew it forth like copy machines on turbochargers; which is, of course, a quite probable tactic they employ simply to wear the rest of us down.

Be that as it may, however, we must engage them because it is also possible, however unlikely, that they may be addressing an issue we've missed; even if they addressed it in a completely ham handed, and self serving fashion. And of course we must also engage them because we need to find ways to cooperate no matter how offensive, or disgusting we may see their point of view. Because, without cooperation, this nation cannot survive as any kind of a union at all, whether it be a Federation, or a tightly bound national entity of some other sort. It is just the way it is, and we have to find a way to live with it; everyone of us on all sides of every issue.
