Gay Marriage and Unintended Consequences - addendum

One great quote that I overlooked from Asymmetrical Information's "really, really, really long post about gay marriage that does not, in the end, support one side or the other":
"Indeed, to this day, I find the reformist side much more persuasive than the conservative side, except for one thing, which is that the conservatives turned out to be right."
The same can be said about music. I always loved The Clash and Rage Against the Machine even though I thought they were commies. In fact, I'd bet that a lot of people that became communists around the turn of the century did so because of "The Internationalle" - that's still a pretty good song for riling people up.
