They will ask you to lie, it's only a little lie...surely no big deal.
But that little lie, is the first tiny drop of an ocean of sorrow to come.

Anyone who says that a system built on suffering must continue because they also suffered and turned out fine did not, in fact, "turn out fine".

Yes, it will be tremendously expensive to apply heavy trade sactions to China. But it was also tremendously expensive to liberate the slaves from the US south. Money never excuses moral failure.
