“You won’t find your dead in the graves or the bones or the latrine. That’s not where they’re waiting for you. They’re inside you. They survive only in you, and you survive only through them. But from now on you’ll find all your strength in them—there’s no other choice, and no one can take that strength away from you. With that strength, you can do things you might not even imagine today.”
Does it not feel great, even euphoric, to be better at something than another person? I think it does. But only superficially. And, it is short-lived. It attracts resistance, and at some point violence. It retards cooperation, relationships, communities, nations.
