How do you keep a group of people from attaining any sort of goal
whatsoever? How do you make any group smaller and less powerfull?
SIMPLE. Keep them bickering about ANYTHING. Which color, creed, beer,
pizza, or operating system is better than the other.
Fall into that trap and you've made your group that much smaller, that
much less powerfull because instead of doing what they like to do -
they're bickering about something.
And even a newbie can see that nothing gets handled, fixed or done when
you're wasting time bickering like a bunch of fish-wives...
I'm not saying that these things can't be discussed, but when it goes on
for rediculous lengths of time, it's only bickering and nothing more.

If a builder sold you a home with no locks on the doors and no
latches on the windows, I suspect that he could be successfully sued
in the modern "blame everyone in sight" environment of the U.S. And,
unlike a number of other cases, I would agree with that, on the basis
that (unless the home was in an extremely remote location) the
builder was intolerably negligent to omit those locks and latches.
