There are ways to avoid the truth. First, close your eyes and pretend it’s not there (easy and popular, but very dangerous)
The second approach is to manage the continuing issue. Obfuscate the issue: add decoys, red herrings, a couple of scapegoats and whatever extraneous are within reach. Convince others that it’s unclear what the disputants want, therefore you can take no action. (which in fact you just did) Keep the situation’s cause simmering, but attack the symptoms. It assures them that they need you.
3 postpone the issue to some other generation. Take no assertive action)
4. Fight it, even though you’re aware that it’s wrong to fight it. Win the battle at all cost, and eventually lose the war.
