Do You Really Want a Safe Place?
Is that what you want?

You want to be so weak that you are protected from threats? What the hell kind of life is that? You are a paralyzed rabbit in a hole. That is no life for a human being.

You should be confronting danger and the unknown and malevolence. The reason for that is: The solution to the problem of tragedy and malevolence is the willingness to face them now.

Who the hell would ever guess that? It is a completely paradoxical suggestion. Well, why does it work? Because the more you confront the two of them, the more you grow, and maybe you can grow so that you are actually larger than the chaos and malevolence itself.

And you think, “Well, what is the evidence for that?” That is easy. That is what people do.
