“Preferring not to” or simply “Bartleby” means being unwilling to compromise with the system in any way, shape or form. It means the refusal to take a bribe (especially of the liberal sort). It is an absolute negation. It will not argue with the system. It will not argue with it in ways that conform to its own terms.
