7. unfortunately that's how it works
If you want to change policy, you absolutely have to bring the opponents along, or at least give the illusion that they have a place at the table. Otherwise they will do everything in their power to stop you or drag the process out so long that nothing gets done anyway. Sure, there will always be some who will fight no matter what you do, but by at least recognizing their cause, you will bring enough over to get real policy work done.
