Do not struggle for profit, success or security at the price of a lien on your right to exist.
Such lien is not to be paid off; the more you pay them, the more they demand;
The greater the values you seek or achieve, the more vulnerably helpless you become.
Theirs is the system of white blackmail devised to bleed you, not by means of your sin,
but by means of your love for existence.
