All that's necessary is to know some things, but not others. Selective
knowledge works as "well" as falsehood or bad information-processing for
producing incorrect decisions.
Some opposition will be stupid and unconvertable, some opposition will
be mistaken and convertable, a substantial proportion will be mistaken
and unconvertable, and a small and possibly deadly fraction will be
stupid and convertable.
