If all reasonable people of good will and patience will eventually reach consensus, then anyone who fails to join in that consensus as being unreasonable or lacking in good will or patience. The "nice" (consensual) and "nasty" (intolerant) faces of communitarianism are thus joined. This article attempts to deny communitarians that excuse for intolerance by undermining Keith Lehrer's proof of the inevitability of rational consensus among all patient people of good will.
