THE FURRY FURY
Look, I know that there are a lot of people out there who are saying, “let’s all just calm down and relax and learn to live together. We’re too deeply divided.”
Sounds perfectly reasonable, doesn’t it? Christian and adult and big-hearted even.
But you’re making a set of assumptions based on the fact that the other person must also necessarily be reasonable, adult, and morally conscious.
Entertain, if only for a theoretical moment, that the other person might not be, and might not even want to be.
Because it has been my personal and reliably demonstrable and empirical experience in life that when you have two people in a relationship and one unrepentantly kicks, screams, stabs, runs riot, burns things, attacks the other, yells a lot, shoots at you, lies, manipulates, and throws an endless temper tantrum whenever they don’t get their way that what is really called for is not more hand-holding and saying of, “there, there, baby, everything will be okay… I’m trying really hard to understand you…”
No, what actually happens in real life is that eventually you either separate yourself from, crush, or jail the sociopath.
Because sociopaths are like that. They are like that as individuals, and they are most especially like that in a herd, a flock, or a mob.
That is the actual Truth of the matter.
