The Immoral Other-Debate between Party and Non-Party Groups

Increasingly as we move into a situation where earlier, time-tested, theories, ideologies, premises and guidelines for political action get confused and blurred, when one dominant feeling is that of deep insecurity and ineffectualness, a common tendency is for the *so far held views' to harden. Debate then is transformed into a tirade against the other, perceived as a competitor if not an antagonist.
