“Taken out of context, I must seem so strange…”

 I was watching a dog and a cat who were running free in a backyard last friday.  I don't think either party meant any harm...but a quick unexpected turn by of them and one misunderstanding(pg.12 in particular) led to another.  Too bad we don't have the ability of bees to just smell each other and determine if others are with or against us.  But really this problem of inner quibbling between people with shared fundemental values is something that's bothered me since my earliest attempts at political engagment and really totally turned me off from the scene.  I wasn't involved long enough to do any quibbling myself, I just wasn't engaged...

I don't think it's useful to put up with people you disagree with so you can slowly convert them to your own ideals but I think it's essential to learn to co-operate and communicate with people sharing the same ideals if you ever want to do anything substantial. 

I don't have a clue how to do that.
