[March 20, 2023] If you are a harmless man, as we are told we must be, then you are just harmless, like a frightened fluffy animal. You will not be useful to you or those around you. Fluffy animals get eaten. A good man is a monster but who does not act like a monster.
I wrote a chapter in my latest book titled “He was the most dangerous man I ever knew.” Sergeant Collins was the toughest, meanest, scariest man I had ever met. He broke the rules all the time, and he was not obedient. He would crush you like a cockroach if you were not on his side. But he taught us to defend ourselves and never lose a battle, even if outnumbered by 10 to 1. Sergeant Collins had incorporated his maliciousness, cruelty, callousness, and vindictiveness into his being and learned to control it and use it as a weapon. Indeed, he was a very dangerous man.
The good man has to be a monster, but a controlled monster. It’s the story we always hear. You have to be put into a position that will toughen you up voluntarily, of course. Being tough means holding your own against others and standing up for yourself and others who need protection.
Learn to develop your inner monster, which makes you a better person, not a worse person.
It is not always clear to determine what our place is in the world. The thing of interest to that idea of self-determination is not about the good we could do, but the harm we can do. You can debate about the good we do, but we cannot debate the harm we can do. We know when we harm.
Understand that evil runs down the center of your heart. That is a deep part of you – the monster in you – and make it a part of you that makes you strong, menacing, dangerous, and frightening. That is what makes us human. We see those things that humans have done that are evil, but we can also overcome that evil and not let it possess us.
It is easy to be on the side of the weak and allied with evil.
“If you think tough men are dangerous, wait until you see what weak men are capable of.” – Jordan B. Peterson, 12 Rules for Life
Yeah, that is right.
