How loyal are you to your cause, nation, or nationality, etc.?
If you were in a situation where you had to choose to malign your nationality (if it was not so obvious that you could not disguise it), group, orientation, company, etc. if you were threatened with incarceration, or an astronomical fine, would you? For example Mr. Newman faced the dilemma, say he and the US was wrong and go free or stick to his guns even at the point of losing his freedom. Which would you do, go for the escape, or stick to your guns even if doing so would bring a great negative outcome for you?
