I often state that 'truths' are context-dependent… I also wrote about the Kālāma Sutta (http://gplus.wallez.name/PUQ2AeReGEM) and not accepting 'truths' based on the fallacies of  "appeal to authority" (argumentum ad verecundiam) or "appeal to the majority or popular sentiment" (argumentum ad populum)…

But can there be a case for following the majority? Might the rejection of argumentum ad populum be a case of prejudiced ignorance, just like its acception may be?
