Truth stares every person in the face, if you have the mettle to match its gaze, not be filled with dread and speak its existence devoid of hubris life changes for the better every time.

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.
