The six million dollar woman

Pay blackmail, and they’ll always come back. Pay ransom and you’ll have another kidnapping. Ms. Sgerna’s freedom appears to have cost the Italian government $6 000 000, but for leftists who can’t stop thinking that they got to “stick it to the man” forcing their own nation which, deep down, they hate, this is a double emotional victory.

They get to harm their own nation, and still play the victimhood
“power under game”.
