There is only so much high ground you can take.
Think of the Tour de France doping. Where to give the first place to someone who wasn't doping, they'd have to go all the way down to 23rd.
But what does that matter?
All the people who were doping got the better contracts/signing deals because they had better performance. They were paid millions and are subsequently more well known so they could easily make a living doing other things based on their fame.
They are set for life. The other dudes might be struggling to keep their head above water even now. Lance Armstrong, in the moral wrong, is sitting on his millions he made in brand deals and winnings, the 23rd place guy probably has jack shit to his name comparatively despite being in the moral right.
You can take the high ground all you want, but if the other part is not willing to agree that the moral high ground is the high ground they will not stop.
Gandhi's whole approach was brinkmanship, he could've been non-violent all he wanted, if the people oppressing him didn't eventually relent and admit that they were in the wrong none of what he achieved would've happened.
When the whites were crusading to get slavery abolished worldwide, the main trouble was with arabs. Arabs had no such guilt over slaves, in fact in their holy book it permits them to have slaves as a result of conquest. Arabs were running around slave trading and causing real problems well into the 1900s, for instance the Sheikh of Qatar met the queen accompanied by slaves.
Given half the chance they would go right back to taking slaves because it is part of their culture and they feel no guilt about it.
It is this difference in culture making the moral high ground at all costs useless.
If it was another European nation doing the same, the moral high ground would work because they are of the same culture, and hold more or less the same values.
If someone is out there and he's not going to stop until you are dead, sure you can run away, but at some point there will be nowhere to run away to, you can either fight, or you will die. It's as simple as that, holding on to morality when your enemy clearly lacks any will always turn out badly for you.
I'm not saying that it's fair. But it's about doing what's right. Are you arguing that doping is fine so long as 22 people are doing it?
