3. Individuals, and groups (government or otherwise), that attempt to
*impose* ideals on themselves and/or others, *never* achieve their
"visions", and in fact quite often the ultimate effect is to produce
situations *diametrically opposed* to those visions. The greatest evils
on earth have been perpetrated by people who claim that the world is
"supposed" to look like xyz - and usually this is a vision of harmony,
or some utopia, where everyone gets along and is happy.
The only thing idealists ever succeed in doing is getting people killed. Oh,
they may seem to accomplish something, but in a few generations it gets wiped
out one way or the other. And utopians are the most noxious of the breed.
The only things they have ever produced is inquisitions, gulags and gas
The only good one is a dead one.
