No human being can be superior to another human being. So with that in mind, there would be no reason to listen to someone who considers themselves to be "superior". It would only backfire and feed that complex they have about considering themselves superior.
Now, if we were to be talking about a work place situation, were the question was about listening to a boss, supervisor or employer, then it would come down to our own moral judgement. Morals are subjective, so the senseless act would have to seem senseless to the person who refuses to carry out the task.
If I found something my boss told me to do, to be morally objectionable, I'd tell that boss where they could stick their plan.... lol
