I have often wondered at the smugness with which people assert their right to enslave me, to control my work, to force my will, to violate my conscience, to stifle my mind—yet what is it that they expect to depend on, when they lie on an operating table under my hands? Their moral code has taught them to believe that it is safe to rely on the virtue of their victims. Well, that is the virtue I have withdrawn.
Such thinking are those who seek "virtue" from their "subjects"! These don't just assume a position, but they presume upon it! This is why one must choose their leaders wisely! Otherwise, one will be under the hands of the moral dictators, that demand obedience to the "other's" demands, and at your costs!!!
Virtue cannot be demanded, as it must be given by a personal free choice of value and conscience!
