I notice that extreme views always seem to go along with cruelty. In Coomunist Russia, a fervid dedication the the Proletariat apparently freed many to be atrociously cruel to those who did not measure up. Forced Pregnancy forces (who call themselves 'pro life') have actually killed doctors and nurses and patients. Animal extremists inflict suffering on humans that should, one would have thought, be abhorrent to those who sicken at cruelty to animals. The cause doesn't seem to matter. Is the adherence to extreme politics simply a cloak for, and permission for, the expression of cruelty?
