    So relevant in today's culture!

    I'm in the middle of Jordan Peterson's book. He references Nietzche a fair amount. And I don't recall that he tied the point to Nietzche, but Peterson makes the point that being incapable of violence does not make you good. Being capable of violence but then making the choice when to appropriately use it makes you good.

    Something that we may have discussed many times here...

    The Jordan Peterson book is amazing. It should be required reading in high school.

    Weakness without challenge won't reveal good or evil. Your response to challenge, when you're weak, reveals much.

    Always entertaining, mildly offensive
    IANative: Indeed, when you grab Brent (or he grabs you), it feels like liquid unobtanium wrapped in rawhide... whereas Greg is just solid muscle wrapped in hate, seasoned w/ snuff and a little lead.
