So, the earnest search for common ground might go something like...

"Look, even though I believe A, and you believe A-prime, I bet we do have some things that we share. What do you think of this pipeline project that they are doing? Or, how do you apply your A-prime to your family? Maybe I do the same thing." etc.

The thread was supposed to be about first principles (yours, mine, his, hers), not cookie recipes (or pipelines or family or...).

Don't worry about it: the thread served its purpose (still is).

Then you should have called it search for complete agreement... it's not a common ground sort of thing

Wasn't lookin' for complete agreement...was lookin' for a comparison of principles...after a fashion: I got that (still am).

As I say: don't worry about it.

That is contempt for all others. A characteristic of an extremist. You only want to 'wreck shit'. That is your common ground. Screw everyone else.

"That is contempt for all others."

Nope. I just like my way of quoting better.

#

"A characteristic of an extremist."

Takes one to know one.

#

"You only want to 'wreck shit'."

Some shit: yep.

#

"That is your common ground."

Nope.

#

"Screw everyone else."

Nah, not everyone, no.

You? Absolutely.
