It's an old dilemma

Do you take a hit in order to further the greater good (or at least in order to avoid increasing the harm to society), or do you take the dog-eat-dog approach and cover your own ass even when doing so increases the harm to everybody else?

While my personal ethics fall strongly on the "take the hit" side, I do also recognize that others may think otherwise.
