      Writing emotionally overwrought at the end of the night you never know what it'll look like in the morning.

      I was trying to make the point set forth in the last paragraph but then I started thinking about Mandela and how he would/could not renounce violence, and the I/P conflict, and what makes an ideology acceptable or unacceptable? Is it just the means in which it is carried out? Does the fact that there are armed combatants on both side make a difference, and if so, why?

      I think I raised more questions for myself in this than I was able to answer, honestly.
