Being nuanced

How is this beneficial/helpful/good for people who have to make significant choices as to with whom they socialise and where they go out of an evening?

Maybe the people who allow and thereby actively encourage these things need to walk through certain parts of central London at night like I have to sometimes and get an idea of what it's really like.  And I'm mostly looking at the pavement

Being nuanced = allowing people to talk themselves around into doing things that are wrong.

The other euphemism is "a hard decision"- which actually has some truth in it as it means it involved struggling against the clear voices of truth, reason and conscience.

Yup and then having agonised the modern thing is that you are then given leave to do the wrong thing, which is handy, rather than forcing yourself to do the right thing.
