Se os ideólogos vos odeiam ...

"Castigating Robespierre more than 200 years after his death would have little point if he were not the prototype of the ideological frame of mind that is very much with us today.

If we understand him, we understand that it is utterly useless to appeal to reason and morality in dealing with ideologues. For they are convinced that reason and morality are on their side and that their enemies are irrational and immoral...

Negotiation with such people can succeed only if we have overwhelming force on our side ..."

John Kekes, City Journal
O diálogo pode ser útil no caso dos ignorantes e dos indiferentes.

Aos ideólogos empedernidos não vale a pena dar pérolas.

Mas ao contrário do que este autor 'conservador' - muito considerado pelos nossos 'conservadores pós-modernos' - propõe, a solução cristã é afogar o mal em abundância de bem (mesmo que um mero par de estalos - bitch slap - fosse suficiente para resolver o problema).
