Nor are most radicals.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

However, it is the screwiest of screwballs who are the vanguard of the revolution.

You're a paranoid until the do it ...

Texas sharpshooters' fallacy, I think...

Yes, occasionally craziness goes viral. That doesn't mean that the craziest things you hear are the most likely to gain traction. You're forgetting the hundreds of other crazy ideas that found no purchase at all.
