You would question whether or not revolution is a good thing? Why, sir, you question the wisdom and words of our Founding Fathers! Read their words.
They indicated that periodic revolution is always a good thing!
Believe me, I'm no fan of anarchy. Seen that before, and there's nothing pretty about it. It's depressing, it's troubling, it's a constant
state of uncertainty, it's uncomfortable, and generally a real pain in the ass.
I'm not about to lay down my weapons until everyone else does first, and not even then. Because I know men - many will hide theirs as well too.
Maybe before, but certainly ever since I walked into my first village that was slaughtered, I just haven't been able to work up much faith in the
goodwill of men. Call it a coincidental series of bad experiences, but I know that there are men who kill for the pure hell of it.
They weren't threatened, they gained nothing - they just killed innocents because they could. Just between us, much of mankind is a canker, a
pus-filled boil on the ass of the universe. There's a lot more men who need killing than you would think.
Just doesn't leave me with a warm, fuzzy feeling, so no use coming at me with that pseudo-Eastern-bearded, orange-cloaked, mystical enlightenment,
think good is to create good BS.
I fought some truly evil men, and yet I didn't become one of them.
There's a difference between meeting ruthless men with even greater ruthlessness. Unlike my enemies, I never went looking for it. But when they
came looking for destruction, I sure didn't want them going away disappointed.
In fact, I didn't want them going away at all. Period. For that reason alone, I never played nice with them, I never played fair, I never gave them
a chance, and I never gave them mercy.
I didn't even have the courtesy to bury them.
So, if it seems like I'm a sleepyhead, it's likely because I've been on the wall so others could get some rest in peace.
I'm not complaining.
It was worth every effort.
