This was the fortune cookie message from lunch yesterday:
“For a good cause, wrongdoing may be virtuous.”
I told my assistant that it sounded like a license to steal…but many other dark ideas came to mind.
In any case, since this is an IR blog, I might note that numerous scholars and diplomats would likely agree with the advice offered by that fortune cookie.
Given that I have a very large stack of papers to grade, I will put this one to the readership. Comments?
Note: this is apparently a fairly common fortune, but yesterday marked the first time I ever received that message.
