During WW II, the Polish resistance obtained the German encoding machine called enigma. The machine was brought to England. The British broke the code machine just before an attack on the British city of Coventry. Churchill, the Prime Minister, faced a dilemma – tell Coventry about the forth-coming attack and save those people but the Germans would know that the British broke the code. The Germans would change it and London could be attacked killing even more people. OR not tell Coventry and protect London and other places.
What would you advise Churchill to do?
Would you tell him to lie about whether he knew?
