The Trouble with Trouble

From my vantage as the person with regulatory supervision over the disposition of property, I see a lot of the worst aspects of self-preservation. People will get themselves into trouble with property (where both money and career are concerned), and they simply do not want to admit facts that militate against if they think there is a chance that Fate will deal them a kind hand and clear their debts to the house. If it’s lost, admit it. The cover up is worse than the crime. Everybody knows it. It’s a rare bird who will fold. Most prefer to double down on the cover up.

I guess it must work often enough to create the illusion of invincibility.

There must be some aspect to the instinct of self-preservation that turns rational faculties mute.
