Padraic you have hit the nail on the head when you talk of people's relationship to ideologies and I totally agree that taken to its logical conclusion this is very dangerous. Principles are fine and good but it is our relationships with each other that humanise us...when we get to know our enemies the enmity, percieved or otherwise, matters less and less. The good thing is that despite the dissidents, I believe we are so well into the process that we could never go back.
