If people are too afraid to do the right thing, they are .... and too afraid to do the wrong thing they are ...
What words apply respectively?
1)If you don’t rape because you are afraid of the consequences it can’t be because you’re a coward, otherwise it would mean if you do rape you are brave, which isn’t logical.
2)If you do save the child on the subway tracks by lying over the child, (NYC? story from a few years ago) it does mean your brave plus, but if you don’t does it necessarily mean you’re a coward?
