No, it doesn’t work that way. I have never advocated dropping one’s personal value system to collaborate across ideological lines. I advocate socialism because I value it; collaborating across ideological lines doesn’t mean becoming an amorphous blob with no positions on anything other than being anti-establishment. Conservatives who demand that I relinquish my own values before they’ll collaborate with me aren’t the sort of conservatives I’m interested in collaborating with. I’d certainly never demand that you give up your own values in order to fight the machine alongside me.
