In a perfect world, all our binary choices would be simple and easy to make. We would choose from between bad and good. We would know the right and wrong choice. And depending on our moral compass the decision would be easy. Life is not that black and gray. There is this little thing called nuance. And, there are inconvenient choices. Plus, there are, at times, all bad actors in a scenario.
Sometimes, as life would have it, only bad choices are left. This point was hammered repeatedly in The Hangover trilogy. That first movie was golden. The rest had a few good laughs. When all you have are bad choices, you supposedly choose the less bad one. Of course, that is subjective.
In such a situation, I say take the nuclear option. Just burn the proverbial house down. Sometimes you go for a hail mary. Sometimes you just don’t care and roll that dice.
