Humakt doesn't care what Zorak Zoran thinks. Humakt considers Zorak Zoran to be a beast in need of taming. Zorak Zoran considers Humakt to be a sissy-boy panty-waist.

I don't think so. OPPOSING an ambush is not participating in it, any more than OPPOSING the lunar conquest of Sartar is participating in it.

I believe "participation" in this sense might involve some attitude of legal and/or moral culpability.

There are many acts of virtue, but three are the greatest:

To engender love where there is hate.

To bring understanding where there is ignorance.

To really slam some clueless git in grand style.
