I agree about hindsight - although, for various reasons, I'm pretty sure I never would have supported the Nazis. But that was just an example.

The real question is: when you don't know anyone in a particular group, how do you go about finding someone to help you make sure your comments on that group are at least relatively fair? Again, to use the same example: I wouldn't be looking for someone who thought it was okay to trade with Hitler, or thought he was a great guy - I'd be looking for a German who didn't like Hitler to help me avoid insulting Germans in general along with Hitler. Obviously, that's not what I'm looking for. But I'm wondering - in a more general sense - how anyone would go about finding someone like that.

The obvious answer would be to go on a forum for (Group X) - but I figure even if anyone rational did volunteer to help, the noise-to-signal ratio of people aiming flamethrowers (metaphorical ones) my way would drown them out.
