Everything else you say is true, but the fact that one cannot
*defensibly* assign blame to a group has seldom stopped people from
assigning blame to groups before -- even when the viewpoint or action
only represents a minority of the group.  I could draw any number of
examples from world politics; Debian politics are not so different.
