: McSpotlight: Surely this rests on the idea that you always act on your opinion?; there is a great deal of difference between having an opinion and acting on that opinion; you may believe, say, that gravity doesn't exist; but even the most diehard non-believer in gravity will think twice about jumping out of an aeroplane...

: To use a slightly more mundane example, suppose your best friend is cheating on their husband/wife; this is wrong in your opinion, but if you value their friendship more than you value correcting your friend's perceived wrongdoing, then you will do nothing.

A but surely such observations are mere borgousie moral ranglings that weaken the revolutionary resolve of the international working class revolution under the guidance of the all knowing peoples vanguard?

Should you not first consider if your friends 'cheating' relates to the historical mission of the proletariat, class analysis and class interests and the iron laws of historical determinism and the diktat and wisedom of the vanguard?

Does this sound sufficiently like nonsense yet?
