Nay. I don't think you should ring any 5,012s of triples, since you
don't like them;
and I doubt I will, either. But implying (however subtly you want to
cast it) that
other people that want to do so are inferior to us I find objectionable.

"History is the long and tragic story of the fact that
privileged groups seldom give up their privileges voluntarily.
Individuals may see the moral light and voluntarily give up
their unjust posture; but as Reinhold Niebuhr has reminded us,
groups are more immoral than individuals."
