Extremism

The intellectually lazy, ignorant and/or arrogant find solace in the extreme.    Balance requires action, thought, humility and often sacrifice of self.

 "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."  Isa 1:18
