You are so right Joe. If you have an extended conversation with someone who is not in agreement with your view of HOW things should get done you usually find out that your goals are essentially the same. Diasagreements focus on ways and means and the ethics involved. Phrases like "The ends justify the means" challenge core beliefs. Same for "Jesus is the answer to everything". In the practical world these types of inflammatory statements serve no good. They may be useful as a motivator or winning the undecided but that's it. And that is also my way of agreeing with you concerning the difference between ideology and an ideologue.
