Ideology and Reality

Besides, if I steadfastly avoided putting money in the hands of every last organization and institution that I despised, I'd hardly be able to make it out of the house in the morning, much less travel to post-Soviet countries. I pay taxes to a government that tortures and drone strikes people without trial, and lets banks rip off billions from the general public with no consequence. Do I love the idea of that? Not at all. But if you want to have a particular experience in this world (living in America, visiting North Korea) sometimes you have to give some assholes some money for it.
