I am developing compassion for the frontman. Once he/she recognizes the loathsome role they have been assigned by those who encouraged them, they would be better off not discussing it. For if they perceive their scapegoat is becoming uncomfortable rather than carrying out their task in blissful ignorance, history shows they will likely turn on him and it will be brutal. It is best to never get involved in carrying out bad deeds for others. Bad deeds never result in anything other than oppression and suffering for everyone. They never lead to power and prestige. Even if it seems like they might during the initial offering.
