Progress is not achieved by preachers and guardians of morality but madmen, hermits, heretics, dreamers, rebels, and skeptics.

Ersatz

is a situation found in chess and other games wherein one player is put at a disadvantage because they must make a move when they would prefer to pass and not move. The fact that the player is compelled to move means that their position will become significantly weaker.
