"I was trained to not speak up. On the surface this might seem like good advice. It is the easier path, the path of least resistance. I was trained not to question things, because if I did, this would set me apart somehow. But the real reason for not speaking up was that it would bring into focus my own similar behavior. The denial of my own behavior would become that much more difficult, if not impossible." Claude AnShin Thomas, "At Hell's Gate", page 127
