"Politics, is, by its nature, a choice between evils but an inspiring leader can hardly present it as such. It's always worthwhile to ask yourself, when a decision is made, not what the people making it hoped to achieve, but what were the evils they hoped to avoid or mitigate. This will be much more instructive, and more likely to predict their future behaviour. But it is generally just too humiliating, or even too frightening, to admit in public."
