If that is the case, they might complain that they don’t like everything that you do, but it doesn’t matter—they will conform to the rules of the system and make money for themselves and for you.
Если вы поступаете именно таким образом, то утверждения ваших франчайзи о том, что они не одобряют всех ваших действий, не имеют для вас никакого значения, — они выполняют правила системы и зарабатывают деньги для себя и для вас.

Have not I the most reason to complain, when I see these very YAHOOS carried by HOUYHNHNMS in a vehicle, as if they were brutes, and those the rational creatures?
Разве не достаточно у меня оснований сокрушаться при виде того, как эти самые еху разъезжают на гуигнгнмах, как если бы они были разумными существами, а гуигнгнмы - бессмысленными тварями.

Of course, tales of nastiness and murder are always handed down with slavering delight from generation to generation, while students groan and complain when they're faced with a George Washington Carver or a Jonas Salk.
Конечно же, байки о мерзостях и убийствах всегда с рабским наслаждением передаются из поколения в поколение... а ученики при всем при том стонут и жалуются, оказавшись перед изучением трудов Джорджа Вашингтона Карвера или Джонаса Солка.
