Are you or have you ever been a known binarist? :) I feel the cold wind of a postmodernist purge. Burn the essentialist binarists.

One of the luxuries of pure speculation is that you can avoid hard choices and either/or decisions. But in most organizing, there are choices, in time, in energy, in resources devoted to one strategy or another.

And success goes to those groups that choose to put their resources into the best strategies while minimizing resources wasted on ineffectual ones.
