Discussion: Would You Support Your Side If They Did Wrong?

Discussion thread. Follow-up to last week’s discussion here.

For left-wing readers: Imagine a left-wing movement comes to power. They make hospital birth mandatory (to create “healthy equity”), allow child-abuse (to protect the “sexual orientation” of “minor-attracted-persons”), and pass laws protecting all forms of genital cutting (to "protect Muslim and Jewish minorities”). Their only opposition is a far-right counter-movement. Do you join the opposition?

For right-wing readers: Imagine a right-wing movement comes to power. They make hospital birth mandatory (to “protect children”), allow child-abuse (because “spare the rod, spoil the child”), and pass laws protecting all forms of genital cutting (for “religious freedom”). Their only opposition is a far-left counter-movement. Do you join the opposition?
