There comes a point when you realise that what you are doing is so wrong that the only way to stop is to completely break it. To take it to a point where everyone and everything is forced to cease and desist.
Of course, you look like a complete jerk and no one ever knows that you made yourself the bad guy so that you could do what was right for everyone.
I'm tired now. Tired and hurt. It was for the good of the many. I'm feeling a lot like Spock right now.
