The Brutality of Reason Example

By Ironcross One-One

Slicing and dicing things into pieces small enough
to be fed to Liberals, Kooks and Anti-Americans.
When feeding Kooks and Anti-Americans
I suggest a potato gun.

If you are the emotional liberal type, this mindspace will make you uncomfortable. If you think my logic or facts are faulty, lets discuss it. When your findings disagree with my findings, that is dialogue. But using rhetoric to disagree with science is demogoguery. No demogoguery! I usually refrain from insults, but occasionally, ignorance and liberal hypocrisy bring out the worst in me.

There is No Glory Without Struggle and Sacrifice

Think about it.

Celebrity may be bought with gold, but glory is bought with effort and blood. I don't know of any culture that grants glory on the cheap.

Power is a commodity that can be traded, but glory is shared only amongst those that earn it.

Shakespeare rounded it up pretty well... And gentlemen in England now-a-bed, shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here, and hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks, that fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day -- Henry V

As little use as I have for Nietzsche, he understood that struggle is the road to glory and a great struggle is won through great investment and sacrifice. A great opponent makes us better that we were and that which does not kill us, makes us stronger.

Be patient in your struggles. Appreciate them. A lack of challenges and struggles is not a blessing. It is a curse. Be persistent in your efforts. Go under, around or over the impediments.

And when you reach the objective, savor the moment and the glory.
