The Function of the Luminary - advice to activists

The function of the luminary lies not only in that part of the darkness of ignorance that s/he illuminates, but in directing our attention to the contrasting darkness of that part of ignorance that s/he shines not upon.

Those who recognise not this dual function of the luminary, will be condemned to languish in the latter whilst fixated on the former.

In this, they serve as the chasm between knowledge and ignorance, and allow the light to descend to being nothing more than an appendage of the dark which they perpetuate by way of serving as the latter's acolytes.

The Inquisitive venture is a collaborative one. Let's collaborate.

Ad hominem is fine so long as it is accompanied with an argument, as opposed to being confused for an argument. In the latter case, deletion will follow.
