Response to scheming daemons (Original post)

40. So your horse-drawn sleigh is being pursued by a pack of wolves & you shove your grandma out...

...to lighten the load and keep the wolves busy. Eh, she's had a full life, amirite? She'd want to make a meaningful sacrifice, you're sure.

But the wolves, being a pack, dispose of her speedily and, feeling refreshed, pursue your sleigh with renewed vigor. Your horses are in a lather.

Your sleigh is full of passengers: who next? How about a small child -- after all, its mother can have another kid someday, if she can survive this harrowing journey.

And after that snack?

THAT is the meaning of "tossing someone to the wolves." The wolfpack will never be satisfied. The goal is to kill and eat everybody in the sleigh, no survivors.

So, to put it bluntly, to hell with that idea. We already know who we are dealing with.
