It doesn't matter. They are the same.
You can't just ignore bad things. Bad things do exist. Working within the framework of reality is necessary when you are trying to improve reality.

Anybody heard of Ashley or Corinthian? Both companies are located here in the good ole USA. They both produce junk. Ashley and Corinthian does stand by their product. They offer amazing service but their products are crap. If your furniture breaks, they will replace with no problem. The problem with that is, your furniture breaks. Made in the USA.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
