Today’s Quote – 2007.09.16

“ Ideology is always neat. People aren’t neat. You want neatness, be an ideologue. If you want to get along with people, if you want to make a difference, then you have to work in a different domain, one in which ideology serves people, not the other way around.”

  1. The way that I read it, Ruby, the last part is the important part, here’s how I would write it:

    Be suspicious of an ideology that requires you to serve it. Ideologies should serve people, not require that people serve them.

    Thanks for gracing this place with your special light.

    Peace!
