What we do in life, echoes in Eternity
One of the Archetypes of masculinity for the Greeks was mighty Hercules, noble Hector, wily Odysseus, passionate Achilles. These are the attiudes a man should adopt. Strength of Hercules, the nobility of Hector towards friends and the wiliness and cunning of Odeysseyus towards enemies and women...look to the ancients for instruction
....and seek the advantage, and maybe even come together with ones fellows to defeat an organization, because organizations care not for the individual . In this case (like in Europe), the student would be better served to turn a blind eye towards cheating or join in it if he can has the wherewithal to avoid discovery....
@Surma hahaha im anti-anerican so of course i want them to get embroiled in a protracted war against iran - iran is not iraq - it will get support from russia with everything from weapons, to petrol, to commandos transported across the Caspian Sea.
The fact that us is backing down from conflict with iran makes me sad.
@Chaddeus_Rex I think that there are all kinds of levels of escalation. First you have secret agent stuff, then somewhere much later you have commandos killing people and missile strikes, then when army doofuses roll in and its for real, then super last is nukes. As a laymen a lot of modern war games stuff seems to me like eight year old games "I'm not touching you, I'm not touching you, ...". Well I think that the airborne infantry might just get a chance to kill someone during this - if not in Iran proper. It probably won't be "war" though because, lets face it, America can bomb the shit out of your country and send in mercenary armies and its somehow not war but rather peace keeping, zone something-or-other enforcement.Read More
@Chaddeus_Rex I've listened to rank and file Right Wingers glibly say "Kick their ass, take their gas" and "Something something glass parking lot" about Iran since 1979. Even through two wars in the region, the sophistication of their discourse has remained bottom tier.
