Thought #9.

Thought #9.

As a sort-of random admin hereabouts, I've had the odd run-in with some of the more rabid deathmetallers.
Most of those are still here, some as who they always were, and some under new personas.
Only rarely - very rarely - does anyone commit a crime so foul that they are vanished forever.
As this thought half-formed itself, today, I had this to observe about it all...

It is the survivors who pass along their genes, and their messages.
And survivors know when to fight, and when to back off.
There's nothing wrong with fighting.
And nothing wrong with tactical retreats.

You only really lose when you obsess over winning.

Funnily enough, I also had related musings recently. It is a common pattern for those who wish to bear down on a group to bring in outsiders and place them in positions of power and authority. With nothing shared and nothing understood, without even the desire to, indiscriminate suppression is easy.

Hence the ongoing popularity of the mercenary.
