Sounds as though they have a "Speak no evil; Hear no evil, then See no
evil" mentality. They'd likely prefer not to consciously perceive by
any readily made stretch of the imagination the moral dissonance
associated with secrecy to stifle global manufacturing developments,
including their own in a prisoner's dilemma type scenario.

That probably would make them more willing to admit fault or talk
openly about changing the world to a close deeply-trusted associate
very rarely, since exclusively thinking about such changes in safely
confined contexts mitigates moral strain or moral system breakage.

Fortunately none of us have sold our souls, yet; so, we needn't worry
about reinforcing that sortof self-deception to maintain our sense of
identity... yet : )

Attack on Titan, when Commander Erwin commanded Levi to save Armin
instead. Erwin had become a monster to fight monsters. Now, with the
humans on the verge of victory against their foe, someone not a
monster must take the monsters place. Can one even preserve their
personhood as a titan, or do all titans eventually become monsters?

I suppose the struggle between person and beast will always exist, and
stronger in titans.
