Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Hmm.  Well one could spend one's energy arguing against mainstream wisdom.

Or..  You could apply your energies into being productive.  Making things people want.  Performing work somebody wants to pay you for.  If you put effort into it, perhaps you manage to create some wealth.  And if you like, you can utilize it responsibly.  For instance, contributing to malaria research.

Ideals are the ultimate motivators. But also the greatest causes of destruction.

A tip: Don't get too high on your ideals.
