This ties back in with the Game Theoretical Gandhism: Gandhi says
that when someone tries to force one's choice by setting it up as
the lesser of two evils, don't let them.

What he goes on to say is that following such a strategy at times
will involve the need to be strong enough to suck it up, and take
on the outcome of (short term) greater evil.

Is this willingness to sacrifice the immediate game in pursuit of
justice (not vengefulness) related to "turn the other cheek"?


(for the FoRK-posters who post trots: does this imply that if the
invisible hand acts with a lack of tact it's time to get broncy?)
