We've heard Cyclops and Logan's reasoning for their views in Schism, and also Hope's rather (IMHO) dismissive references to Xavier's approach.

But there is another group in the X-verse, with minds of their own.

Dani calls a meeting to get the opinions of the team. Sam and Xian have already made their choice to leave for Westchester and Dani is fine with their choices since it's what they feel they need to do).

Even I think Doug is looking a little... Peter Cushing-y in that panel. Nice that it's Warlock who suggests that things might not be entirely black and white, even if Dani was already thinking along the same lines...

Dani does decide to talk to Gus, the therapist she engaged for Utopia a couple of issues ago. He asks her outright who she is choosing to side with.

Now THIS is reasoning I can get behind, and the New Mutants are probably the best team for it.

I was thinking about it and I think the membership has been in more teams than any other X-group; Dani has worked with SHIELD and the Mutant Liberation Front (undercover), Warlock was in Excalibur (during his Douglock phase), Sunspot was in X-Force, Magma has been in two incarnations of the Hellions (one under a different psyche) and so on (Shame Sam's not stll with them, he was an actual X-Man)

And the end result? The team decides to move away from Utopia, but not to Westchester (shame, I still want to see Doug reunite with his parents) and choose set up shop in a three storey house at 1128 Mission Street in San Fransico's. (An address which exists, but which is actually the local Government building, for those who follow such things)

I've thought from the beginning that if Scott had moved most people back to the San Francisco base, there would not have been a schism in the first place.

Whatever other motivations people have, a lot of the impetus is just to get off that damn island.

(It's a really cool island, but San Francisco is also cool and a helluva lot bigger and comfier.)

Voluntary segregation leads to your enemies building a fence around you and pocketing the key. See the Warsaw Ghetto or the Hopis.

What was voluntary about the Warsaw Ghetto?

IIRC the idea for the Warsaw Ghetto was first proposed by a group of Conservative Jewish rabbis who believed that Jewish segregation would strengthen family and cultural ties.

As the classic quote about most Nazi activities goes, "No one realized it would go so far."
