THE JUDEAN PEOPLE'S FRONT?!

Seriously, it is much better to conduct a debate or vote in terms of
what you like than in terms of what you dislike.

The things you hate the most tend to be the things where you are the
most in conflict with yourself; things that you might have almost
liked, but for some reason chose not to.  Decidedly bad things do
not evoke such strong emotion.
