I had a business for 20 years and one employee I had was, as a child, a member of the KKK. What is interesting is that he didn't know what this group was other than it was a social gathering he went to as a toddler and small child. He didn't end up growing racist so that was good. His roomate was gay so he was not homophobic. A decade ago, I worked with a manager in a Fortune 500 company who was a true blue communist. I thought she was joking at first since she had a high paying job and dressed like a yuppie, but she was for real. We never got into the topic very much but I was dying to tell her about a friend of mine, from China, who lived through the "cultural revolution" and the stories she told me were heinous and hard to stomach, but true, as history now tells us. And finally, earlier this year I met a Lawrence Livermore Scientist who was a very educated, well spoken neo-Nazi and a fan of ethnic cleansing. My first thought was how somebody like this could be in charge of chemical weapons, biological weapons, and nuclear weapons, for the Department of Energy. A very scary thought. What are your stories about meeting people from fringe left wing or right wing groups?
