11. all of us
We are all cowards to some extent. I don't mean to single Edwards out as any worse than the rest. Perhaps I should re-phrase that - "because of the extreme and intense pressure caused by the growing emergency, which is beyond the capability of we humans to withstand or resist, all of us are tempted to confuse prudence with cowardice, and are liable to choose seemingly safe courses of action, compromising and accomodating, that future historians will look back on and may well characterize as cowardice."
