Posted before finishing my thought.

It should be fairly obvious that one cannot effectively oppose the true believer with the same methods that work for those driven solely by what they see as personal advantage.

The problem is that a lot more people will do really bad things for a cause in which they truly believe than will do so for their personal benefit

True, many who are motivated by good intentions (that is, the "true believers") end up doing "bad things", but it's those in power -- those who are motivated by a need to control and impose their will on others -- who do "bad things" to tens of millions of people. Those are the ones that must be defeated.
