This past month of February I found myself in a discussion of “the strong taking from the weak”. As I was thinking on this subject, I started to wonder what other men thoughts were on it. I had a bit of an epiphany. I contacted several men that write for Barbarian Rhetoric. I ran the thought by them asked if they would be interested in writing their thoughts on the subject. Several agreed and now here we are in March of Madness.
For now, I shall remain neutral in my thoughts I am more curious to the thoughts of others on that subject matter. For concept there is a running theory that if a strong man takes something from the weak man then the weak man should have been stronger. This thought is not culture dependent. It can often be used as an excuse, when someone goes, he has it – I want it – defend or I take it. Or, well if a person is dumb enough to be duped then they should expect it.
The first response back from many of the men, this is interesting. It is interesting to think about how often we go down these rabbit holes. what do we learn from these discussions? What knowledge can be passed on and for another to learn? You may learn something yourself. Often, we take a basic subject strip everything away and look at, my problem with this (I catch myself doing it) is that its not reality. For in reality, morals, how you live, how you were brought up, your concepts of right and wrong play into the many of subjects that are discussed.
We do not and should not live life in a box. Life is not about 1 and 0s all the time, there is nuance and semantics that play into our lives. When life is so structured that nothing can be determined unless it is black and white it will lead you to living in a bubble of ideocracy. The sad moment here is many fall into this with their favorite guru. I would wager that their guru doesn’t even believe half of the shit that is spewing out. Think – People will eat shit if its branded as a delicacy.
For now, I shall leave you with what do you think?
Can or should the strong take from the weak?
Should the strong protect the weak?
Are there circumstances that go either way?
May the words that are coming this month reach out and get you thinking. I am looking forward to hearing thoughts of – you the readers. Does this subject hit home? If so, I still have some open spots, if someone wishes to submit an essay on this subject.
