I get it. Play nice. Be respectful. Work within the system.
But then again, that assumes that the "system" is "democratic" or "fair". We've seen how "fair" the GOP is when they 'lose' truckloads of ballots and adjourn conventions when the results aren't to their liking.
I get the "Satyagraha" philosophy. I understand the long struggle. I respect those who advocate for it. But then again, for every Ghandi, there was a Bose. For every MLK there was a Malcom X. For every Jefferson, a Thomas Paine.
It takes many voices. The peacemakers need the rabble rousers. Without them, the peacemakers will be ignored.
