Activists and difficult people

Brian Martin (2001): All of us encounter people whose behavior we find difficult, and many of us are difficult ourselves, at least at times! Some people might imagine that there are fewer problems in groups that are concerned with “good causes,”┬ásuch as feminist, social welfare, or peace organizations, and especially in groups aspiring to nonhierarchical processes and goals. Alas, as participants know only too well, the problems are just as great.
