    You got it.

    And yes, the more we believe in the objective, the more forgiving we are of inconvenient little mistakes in the process. There is no surer way to disaster.

    Look at the Bushies: they put "loyalty" at the heart of everything -- absolutely everything. They made the goal the ultimate. They felt that they were serving God's law, so it was acceptable to lie during a Senate confirmation hearing for the Supreme Court, for example. They thought it was acceptable to deny free speech, because the objectives were too important for dissent. They could torture, because the information that "Monica" had a "gut feeling" the suspect had was too important for laws.

    It isn't just belief that's the enemy, as we all have beliefs, but the fact that a person holds that the beliefs are an exchange or can remove laws, majorities, traditions, and morality.

    Everyone is innocent of some crime.
