TIA BS: Californians Oppose 'Prop 8' Gay Marriage Ban (2422* d) RE: BS: Californians Oppose 'Prop 8' Gay Marriage Ban 29 Jun 09

And, still bugged by sarcasm and superiority...

Am I to understand that:

Ghandi opposed the British occupation because of his need to prove the British wrong and get in the last word.

MLK did not quit the civil rights movement because he had a deep need to prove the segregationists wrong.

Simon Weisenthal's ego drove him to prove that HE was right.

The Abolitionists simply wanted the last word.
and so forth?

I am not saying I am in the same class as any of those. But belittling efforts to stand-up to oppression as simply ego-driven seems pretty snarky.
