Oh, I consider giving up the personal drive to provide reason, encourage honest debate and inspire fairness and social responsibility to be a sacrifice, all right. It's always been painful, but I consider it part of my duty as a member of society to fight the good fight, regardless of cost. To me, this is akin to turning my back on a mugging.
