Their Crusaders and Ours, Yesterday and Today

Political ideologies are the modern version of religions, and all of these groups want a sectarian theocracy of their own. Modern Americans/Westerners will ridicule the religious crusaders of the early modern period or today’s Middle East as unenlightened dolts, completely oblivious that they’re doing the same thing in a different context.

May be an image of text that says '"Political tags-such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth- never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort." RobertA. Heinlein Time Enough For Love'
