“It’s true that some of [the money] might [end up terrorist coffers], just as some resources in any nation will find their way into the hands of criminals (ask HSBC). So why don’t we shut down the phone networks to hamper terrorism? Why don’t we ban agriculture in case fertiliser is used to make explosives? Why don’t we stop all the clocks to prevent armed gangs from planning their next atrocity?”

I wonder where the good hides in times like these. Does it nestle underneath a rock until the time is right? Or does it rest behind the clouds? Other times I wonder if it’s a choice. If the good and the bad are things we can choose to see or not see.
