there's no "afraid" about it. and i certainly don't think it's

i do think that it's fair to say there's a range of viewpoints within
the collective... some people have strong opinions about the best
tactics for affecting the situation in the middle east; there's no
consensus on this, and because aktivix is generally organised along
consensus principles, there's a tendency to stick with the status quo.
