Which answers the original question, because advocacy is what fanatics do,
and marketing is what salespeople do. Fanatics will try to "sell" you what
they are offering up to and including blowing you up. Salespeople don't do
that, because next week they will need to sell you something else.

Comparing advocates and salespeople is roughly equivalent to comparing
terrorists and lawyers. The point is that lawyers don't care what side they
are on, because if they did their effectiveness would be ruined. For
terrorists, there is only one side.
