The Bottom Feeder
There is that variety of scoundrel who avoids an honest day's labor. The type of low-life reprobate who will do anything to flee even the most incipient level of risk and uncertainty. In games, this miscreant will seek out only the weakest of opposition, and in fact, it would be a misnomer to call their prey opposition, they are all too willing to succumb, as a feather succumbs to the slightest breeze. In work, these caitiff redefine Frost's vision of the alternate path. For there is no road not taken for the bottom feeder. Their choice is between safety and inviolability. They can be found as salesmen of lifejackets near an underwater current, or as fresh water providers in a desert. The only thing curious about these rogues is how they've escaped Darwin's clutches, by their very existence.
We think, we feel, we say it's real, but what's it all about.
We laugh, we cry, we live to die, but what's it all about.
We love, we hate, we speculate, about our friends and foes,
But what's it all about.
There is only one way to go and the burden of choice is lifted for those who are courageous enough to pursue truth in its purest and most incomprehensible form, that is to say, it's only form. For the models and concepts engineered by the animal mind are rooted in error. yet they serve a purpose also, that is, to advertise to others, that there indeed is a struggle going on and that this struggle is all there really is.
The warrior must maintain a hearty stride, lest he be chewed at the ankles by mischievous and pugnacious hounds.
To Be Attacked by the Enemy is not a Bad Thing but a Good Thing
I hold that it is bad as far as we are concerned if a person, a political party, an army or a school is not attacked by the enemy, for in that case it would definitely mean that we have sunk to the level of the enemy. It is good if we are attacked by the enemy, since it proves that we have drawn a clear line of demarcation between the enemy and ourselves. It is still better if the enemy attacks us wildly and paints us as utterly black and without a single virtue; it demonstrates that we have not only drawn a clear line of demarcation between the enemy and ourselves but achieved a great deal in our work.
