Tactics and purity of purposeTactics are the only solution to things that cannot be done in the right way. But they should not have the ingredients of intrigue. Not all lies are harmful, and not all tactics are crimes. At least some of these are the last attempts of those who have blocked all other avenues.
Not all shortcuts can be blamed. If it can make the journey easier and reduce the distance to the destination, Then why should we not follow them? The purity of purpose determines the superiority of the means. Everyone has their ways and methods of working. Someone may have invented the 'leverages' to alleviate their hard work. It is also an innate ability. We have to respect those who invent ways that are not harmful to anyone.
