"In that case, you don't speak of overwhelming passion," Enjolras points out.
This seems self-evident to him, although in fact others might disagree.
"If they have passion, it will lead them to act. You mean those who are overwhelmed by the world, or by choices."
That's a state of being Enjolras both doesn't comprehend, and disdains. To be overwhelmed by fear, by pain, by the misery of poverty -- well, he's never felt that, he doesn't fully understand it, but he can encompass the thought, he can allow for it, and the right to freedom from such misery is at the root of their fight. But to have the leisure and the resources to effect change, and to be unable to bring oneself to take useful steps towards that goal: that he can't understand.
