digital collage by Mick Mather
"... idealistic reformers are dangerous because their idealism has no roots in love, but is simply a hysterical and unbalanced rage for order amidst their own chaos ..." - William Irwin Thompson

John M. Mora:
The quote is surely that and straddles the many paths of social thinking. I don't believe the author meant to bring multiple ideologies under the same tent nor to include himself as a transgressor ... and yet, he has.

SusuPetal:
Yes, Susu, beware the idealists. Most are easy-to-identify accusers hard at work shifting blame where it doesn't belong - follow the pointing fingers that too often succeed in said misdirection.

studio lolo:
I'm doing pretty well, Laurel. Better, I fear, than you with yet another forced move ... I assume you're almost, but not quite, settled?
