    I know you don't believe me, but I understand what you're saying and the perspective you're coming from

You are right. I don't believe you. I don't think you are capable of understanding my perspective because you haven't had a lifetime of massively negative experiences with everything Godly, God-like or Goddish.

You believe in people's ability to change their institutions. This is idealism, and is necessary.

I believe in institution's ability to resist change, and change people. This is practicality, and it just is.
