But were he talking to people as, say, a Nader supporter, on the axis
of Nader's campaign, which consists of exposing the two party system
as an instrument of the domination of the rich and corporations, he
would be much MORE effective than as an advocate of some microsect's
campaign, which can only be defended against Nader's campaign and that
of the OTHER microsects on the basis that it is the one and only true
religion, all others being apostates and heretics who will burn
forever in hellfire and damnation.
