“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.”

— Desmond Tutu


Moral of the story: do not let anyone put you in the place of the mouse, take care of your tail.

Or to paraphrase a Brazilian saying: in a river that has piranhas, a smart alligator swimming on his back.

@aral this analogy made me question and reassess countless decisions I have made in the past.
