on the international scene, academia is pushing for protection of just the kinds of investment that this individual did.  it seems that this is a case of double standards in which harvard deems whatever is in their own best financial interest to be necessarily the moral route, reinforcing my theory that the most intelligent among us ought to be ware of their own minds - a person with a massive, refined intellect is more likely to be able to quickly and thoroughly rationalize their own behavior, whatever that might be.
