1 Timothy 6:10

Yes, one could make the argument that in this instance, "Goliath" is "right". Cyprus was dumb enough to invest its gains in government bonds from its historic trading partner. Cue the muted trombone sound. But this leaves out the big picture, the much larger context, the cold hard fact that "right" or "wrong" don't matter here, never mattered.

Put more bluntly -- even if "Goliath" were in the "wrong", knew it and acknowledged it, and it were shouted from the rooftops from every possible commentator, reliable and otherwise, he would still do the exact same thing. This is what these people do.

As the late great Bill Hicks used to say, any questions?
