I don't know how to solve this problem - the problem of endless fission -
but the first step is recognizing it as a problem, rather than a sign of
principled strength. I've quoted this remark of the generally icky Michael
Kinsley several times, but I think it's worth long study: people on the
left are always looking for heretics, people on the right, for converts.

Simple. Malecki is a cretin, and a fellow who's had a strange, shall we
say, relationship to the authorities over the last 30 years. Thank god
there aren't many like him.
