Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"The choice is not between sacrifice and no sacrifices at all, but between sacrifices and unimaginably harsher ones,"

And we note, with some dismay, that you went for the unimaginably harsher ones.

Well, for the country at least. Of course, for you the choice was between being despised by a polity that you avoid meeting and being expelled from your party and from all the cocktail parties held by your rich buddies, so I can see how the latter would have been unimaginably harsher.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
