Yes, Most times I just assume that the other person knows I have altruistic intentions, but that is a bad assumption to make. It's weird to me because I assume most people want to do good, but for some reason many people assume you want poor education (to site your example in the link). I think that is what is most destructive about the media and talk radio, they pit and position the "opposition" in this false l vs r paradigm as evil people that want totalitarianism or something... dividing and conquering. It's always good to start out with common ground.
