    Well I'm not sure being soft is the reason people arent adventurous or brave.

    I'm not even sure they arent either of those things. Maybe. Maybe not.

    Lets say for a moment that people arent as adventurous and brave, why was it different in the past?

    whether or not you credit psychoanalysis itself, the fact remains that we all must, to the greatest extent possible, understand one another's minds as our own; the very survival of humanity has always depended on it. - Open Culture

    The instant you know you can't avoid a fight, strike as hard, as fast, and as brutally as you can.
    Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.

    I like Ender's Game, too.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    That's probably good since it's a book.

    Maybe I was confusing it with Zone of Enders.
