A prime characteristic of worldly politics is its invariable forming of
as "adversarial contest." There has to be a battle. One party, ideology,
group, lobby, or power bloc which has designated itself as "The Good,
the True, 
and the Beautiful" sets out to overbear, overwhelm, overcome, overpower,
otherwise impose itself on whatever opposing parties think they deserve
