    IMO if something is actually worth getting then getting it properly is the best way.
    I don't think that a comparison to Hitler works out well, especially since he was a deranged sociopath with a huge meth addiction. The terrorists were religious fanatics bent on causing mayhem and destruction almost for that end in and of itself. Those are two absurdum arguments against this idea, and as such are fallacious.

    That is not a viable or repliable question in the essence that there are too many extraneous variables, the most inconspicuous being the problem or fact of what the agenda is and who is pushing.

    What strikes my curiosity is the aspect of truth being harmful as it would be misconstrued or interpreted to the individuals political convenience.
