It is not that I cannot conceive of a different life than mine… but it is because I have experienced what I have experienced that I must live in the way I do —otherwise I slip into dis-ingenuity: if I had lived as if I had been to Africa and experienced the oppression and squalid conditions there, when I had actually not, it would be a great disservice to the world —but this does not mean I cannot conceive of the difficulty in 3rd world countries… I can pay my respects without pretending to give my life to a cause that I am not concerned with, and I had better concern myself with what I truly care about, and only by doing this can I arrive at doing what is actually good and not merely a pretense for what could be good…
