    we can't worry about a majority accepting it...we can only control the fact that we don't and act accordingly...Our world is a lot different than it was for them, but the principle is the same.

    •  It's instructive to realize (6+ / 0-)

      that only a relatively small number of people were the driving force behind:

      The American revolution
      The abolition movement
      The original progressive movement
      The suffragette movement
      The civil rights movement
      The environmental movement

      Leaders lead, the people follow.
