I've had variations on this conversation several times recently. Professor: There's option A and option B, and I guess technically there's option C. This clique wants A and that clique wants B. What do you think we should do? DD: I really don't care, as long as the decision process is valid. Professor: But what if they choose C? DD: Then they choose C. Professor: But C is terrible! DD: Could be. But if they need to discover that for themselves, so be it.
