Concealing The Illegitimate
A most relatable situation is the dilemma that prevails where you certainly know that someone is culpable, yet you can’t say or do anything about it because of how you found out. The aforementioned scenario typically sets in on a number of circumstances. In the ensuing developments then, incriminating the culprit ultimately poses the risk of dragging the whistle-blower into equally murky grounds.
The first instance is where unorthodox methods are utilized to solicit evidence for wrong doing. Usually, this approach is in response to some lurking fears or suspicion, which need to be either confirmed or negated. Too bad that the proof, if at all the outcome is in the affirmative, cannot be advanced unless the informant is also ready to lay their head on the chopping block on account of a moral breach.
A twist of fate can also prompt concealment of damaging information. Like two unanticipated people, yet well known to each other, being in the wrong place at the wrong time and for all the wrong reasons, only to bump into each other. In such a circumstance, it is only astute of these parties to step up as confederates.
Disregarding the axiom “if the deal is too good, think twice”, or mere naivety, has also yielded unspoken agony diversely. Here, circumstances can play out in defiance of one’s initial plan, with quite a disorienting and unnerving pattern. But due to the associated stigma, for instance being labelled as greedy or gullible, you will opt into silence and passivity, while holding dearly unto the lessons thus learnt. Unfortunately, this last instance unfolds a bit too often, especially in shopping circles. Providentially, we are here to change this narrative.
