Comment: Debates within the movement are of real value!

(See in situ)

Debates within the movement are of real value!

Whatever opinion one may have on these matters (compromise, endorsements, principles, political reality, consistency, priorities,..)

..i think it is important that there is discussion, whatever way they are being held.

And i also think having arguments like these, no matter how senseless some may feel about them (some even though taking part), is indeed vital to the movement's self-reflection and critical thinking.
Having debates about dogma (which ever one on all sides you name)for me is generally a very good thing.

A society being able to openly debate is a society being alive. This in and of itself, i consider valuable and important; all the more as we are smart enough to keep an open mind and not being destructive =)
