When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.
When you're a liar, a person of low moral fortitude, really any explanation you need to be true can be true. Especially if you're smart enough. You can figure out a way to justify anything.
Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth... these are one and the same fight.
