There's nothing to be gained from passive observance, the
simple documenting of conditions, because, at its core, it
sets a bad example. Every time something is observed
and not fixed, or when one has a chance to give in some
way and does not, there is a lie being told, the same lie
we all know by heart but which needn't be reiterated.
