Within every movement and philosophy, you have people and organizations who have similar goals but different methods of achieving them. For example, within most historical political movements you have reformists who believe in working within existing systems in order to bring about a just social order, and you have revolutionaries who believe in overthrowing the system completely. What are some other good examples of this?

Does this example work - Within the prison system, the idealist people think anyone can be rehabilitated, and that should be the purpose of prison, while others consider prison to just be punishment.
