Hey, I didn't mean to break off with you the other night but I realised we were probably about to get off into turf that would bother Ren. And he was generally being very nice, for him anyway, about a lot of hypothetical business that touches a lot on the fact that someone assaulted him--which I'm still angry on his behalf about--and about people being nosy about his family, which he's usually not forthcoming about. For his own reasons, which I could guess at but even I don't know the whole of.
Anyhow, I am really interested in talking about theoretical ethics. Not just the simple stuff, like people in traffic. And you're right, basically in those circumstances people have to be led for the most part, and a strong voice and decisiveness covers a lot of it. But Uncle Luke got way off into the weeds with us: things like, if you're in hiding for a reason, when is it worth it to come out and help? Or what is the value of your future ability to help people worth compared to the risk of getting thrown in jail or worse now? And you can understand that I wouldn't want to talk about that kind of thing in front of Ren, or in front of Audrey, who's quite observant.
