One of the problems that scientists have is that hey insist on acting rational-
ly and expect that everyone else is doing likewise.  One see this in arguments
with animal "rights" insisters, confrontations with anti-choice demonstrators
and in presentations to congressional committees.  Once having accepted that
one is dealing with a rational human being, you are playing in their ballpark
under their ground rules and have, no matter how vociferously you insist other-
wise, been co-opted by the other side.
