Do or Do Not

“We don’t really have a choice, do we?”

“That is where you are wrong. There is always a choice. The real question is, which ending are you more comfortable with, ethically?”

“What?”

“You heard me. There is always, always a choice to make. You can let things happen and you can fight against them or you can do something completely different. The point is that there is a choice, especially when it looks like there isn’t.”

“You’re talking crazy! I can’t let him hurt people like that!”

“But you could, you know, it’s a choice you make, even if it’s a choice you made before the question was even asked. The fact that you’ve stayed with that answer instead of looking around for some other way speaks to me of one of at least two things. Number One: you fully believe that this is the way to go, or Number Two: you are too weak or uncreative to find another way.”

“What?”

“So which consequence would you rather live with?”
