We bring good things to strife

Financial Times:

Whatever their merits or shortcomings, these [Cannes festival] films tend to confirm Hollywood’s and the industry’s traditional anti-big business bias. There is, of course, a huge paradox in all this given that filmmakers and their stars rely on just the same uncultivated producers, financiers and sponsors they mock on the big screen.

Yes, just like there is a "huge paradox" in the fact that my grandmother resents accepting the terms of a cable contract over which she exerts zero control. She should really be thanking the cable companies, because without them, "cable" wouldn't exist!

It's a paradox that I work for an enormous corporation and hate huge corporations.

Yes, of course. Even better!
