Identifying someone as ignorant or delusional does not free them from ignorance and delusion. If I insist they would not have been confused or angered or upset by what I just said if they were free from ignorance and delusion, it may be true, but it is not really effective. Why argue over responsibility in such situations. Who's keeping the responsibility score anyways? Buddha?
If I want to effectively do whatever it is I'm supposed to be doing with other people (saving them and the other sentient beings, I guess), I darn well better face the the fact that they and I will always be tangled up with some sort of ignorance or delusion. While I am human, this cannot be escaped.
