    Carefull with the word Macho. Its the anti of femine, meaning. anti social, anti care or anti talkative. macho is not related to a good person in its direct sense i think.

    If thats a good man for you thats different but now we don`t talk in general terms.


    Word Origin & History

    macho
    1928 (n.) "tough guy," from Sp. macho "male animal," as an adj., "masculine, virile," from L. masculus (see masculine). First attested in Eng. as an adj. 1959.

    We know that power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely, so a good man, an uncorrupted man, is one who accepts the limitation of his power.

    If it is true that absolute power corrupts absolutely (Marcus Aurelius is evidence to the contradictory, but nevermind), then one who accepts the limitation of their power couldn't have absolute power. Did you mean to imply that a good man can't have absolute power? If so, what do you then mean by absolute power?

    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    About 35" across the waist and 25" down the penis should do it.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Absolute power is totalitarian power.

    For instance, Marxism is a totalitarian ideology; National Socialism is a totalitarian ideology; and Islam is a totalitarian ideology.

    And interestingly, the totalitarian temptation is intuitive, for each politician wishes to maximise their power, and totalitarianism is the maximisation of power. While on the other hand liberal democracy is counter-intuitive, it goes against the grain of any politician, liberal democracy is learnt over centuries of trial and error, and is constrained by a Constitution and the Separation of Powers.

    And today the totalitarian Marxists and the totalitarian Islamists have made common cause against liberal democracy. This is reminiscent of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact of 1939 between the totalitiarians of the Left and the totalitarians of the Right, opening the way forward for the attack on the liberal democracies in WW II.

    Don't you think this is just human nature? If people don't seek power via religion or politics, they're going to do it via business. These people will always exist in society, and it's a matter of finding a balance.

    It's also not just about power: some people really have such strong ideological moralities that they really want to "protect their tribe" so to speak, and believe being morally closed is safe.

    I think we're having a battle with biology, quite frankly.

    A combination of the constellation of these stars: kindness, integrity, and courage.

    They form a triangle. My measure is that a good man is a triangle.

    Or, if we are in luck, he shall be the Summer Triangle:
