It is conformity to the most highly likely facts bound by logic--or a surrender of arms. Yours.
Whether I know it or not or even made it a principle or not consciously, that tenet has ruled my life.
Just one example is that I have lost many friends actually just in being vegetarian. Even though I did not lose them outrightly--It is only that they could never get away with doing that, so I can only say that this is what it boiled down to: my refusal to be man, to own a car, a house, to have a career...is why I lost them.
