Fill in the blanks:

To stress the high stakes in the war between _____ and _____, _____ doesn't dare undermine the power of _____, and therefore can't help but play into _____'s pretensions, becoming part of the _____ they're against and in the process proving just as _____.

After all, if we weren't convinced that _____ was so powerful, we wouldn't grant _____ so much power. You might even say that _____ effectively makes _____ more powerful -- because you can't buy that kind of PR.

Of course, in this case, _____ is very powerful. But it's still a useful and portable metaphor.
