Having moved to the savanna, the monkey, in order to fend off predators and hunt, was forced to develop a mind that could invent weapons. There's nowhere to run from predators in the savanna. Running prey is also not catch up. We had to invent sticks, spears, traps, bows, etc.
Defeat evil using the principle of "Divide and conquer". "My name is Legion» - says pride. All the sins is pride. Share your pride and it will destroy itself. Greed will destroy lust. Greed will destroy the greed. Fear will destroy lies, etc.
Fear and negativity are tricky things, on the one hand, they are weapons against vices, and on the other hand, they are chains that vices use to chain their slaves to themselves. In other words, slaves have a great opportunity to strangle their masters with their own chains.
Don't expect to be saved from fear. Speak, I am not afraid of fear, if fear comes, I will destroy it and become even stronger… If the fear comes, I will eat it and take its weapons. The hope that fear will not come only makes it stronger... Tell yourself, let it come if it is not afraid.
You can resist salt, but it is difficult to resist bread. Bread is the truth, it is like an avalanche that sweeps away everything in its path. On the other hand, if bread is combined with salt, their power will be all-destroying.
One who is not resigned cannot achieve success. Chaos does not wish to give in to order just like that – the main weapon of chaos is fortuitousness and order is love. To accomplish your job, you should do the same thing in circles, resignedly and lovingly, for tens and hundreds of times, detecting fortuitous errors and irregularities.
It's a fear that makes you weak. It's a fear that makes your hands and legs go numb and turns your thoughts into a prolix jelly. Fear is the main and strongest weapon of your opponent as it's like a spear used for attacking you from afar. Before struggling with your opponent, you should destroy your own fear.
Pridefulness is a wild animal that wields great power and shares this power with its owner, but at the same time eats its owner filling his or her body with excruciating pain. Pridefulness is evil power destroying its owner and everything around. However, just like anything else created by nature, pridefulness may be useful. But it's useful only in moderate amount.
Philosophy is a weapon that a person can tempt this wild animal of pridefulness with. Moderate pridefulness, while being chained, can be a great weapon in every human soul.
Beauty is not the most powerful weapon of a woman. The most powerful weapon of any woman is tenderness. A man in love doesn't see or hear anything asa man in love can only feel. And tenderness is the best thing to feel.
It's important for any state to make its citizens armed at least in order to protect ITSELF from its own stupidity and tendency for injustice.
It's impossible to build a democratic state in the society of the very strong and very weak ones. So, it's necessary to somehow make their opportunities and forces equal. Democracy is mutual respect between well-armed people. If we want society to be just, it's necessary to provide all people the opportunity to react to any injustice adequately.
One more thing. The society where every citizen is an armed warrior will never be under control of any external forces. As this society will be successful and known for justice. As any injustice together with an offended person's sniping rifle will soon be turned into justice.
Of course, it's also possible to narrow a gap between the weak and the strong ones by changes in the system of education or laws but it barely works in practice.
Mutual respect based on mutual fear, makes people very polite and civilized.
Female beauty was made to make men serve and worship them, in order to protect women and provide them with resources for «building a nest and growing nestlings».
That's why everything about female beauty is very precious. Worshiping female beauty is a natural state of things. Even female desire to change worships the beauty. Such a changeability helps women keep their weapon on alert not to let men get used to it. And nature encourages women to the right actions by giving them pleasure when it comes to taking care of their beauty. Beautiful hairdos, make up, cosmetics, clothes and shoes give women great joy.
Power is a precious weapon that should be saved. And unnecessary use of any weapon soon makes it useless. And the enemy who sees your weapon, soon gets used to it and learns how to deal with it. Thus, it's really rational to keep your weapon far from prying eyes. And which weapons can a person have? - The power of intellect, beauty, money, physical and spiritual strength.
God will punish those in whom there is no love, and his weapon will be the devil. The devil is Cerberus, the faithful dog of God, punishing those in whom there is no love, and therefore faith, truth and beauty.
On the one hand, woodpeckers are effective and accurate blow difficult to resist. On the other hand, the Achilles ' heel of woodpeckers is stupidity. When you beat your head against the wall every day, it significantly narrows your horizons to a point, preventing you from thinking systematically and observing the situation as a whole. Ideally the woodpecker needs someone who will show where to beat him. A bunch of system analyst and woodpecker is a terrible force.
Pain clears up thoughts and gives the strength to accept the truth by tearing the shroud of doubts away. * Pain is the weapon with which truth fights for lost souls. The greater the pain, the easier a man accepts the truth. * Pain significantly increases the understanding of truth. Pain is a good incentive that helps us become aware and rectify our mistakes.
I dislike painkilling and consolation because easing of pain doesn't allow to realize errors and get wiser. Pain is a weapon of the truth in its fight for the place in the sun. Pain is a sign of someone's mistake. Pain can help a person become disappointed in sweet illusions and say no to destructive temptations and to master laziness. Pain is a source of strength for fighting with personal sins. And killing pain, in its essence, destroys the incentive for fighting with personal faults.
There is a silver lining, behind every cloud the sun is hidden. When things are bad, do not be discouraged, but seek benefit. Any problem is always an opportunity to learn something, to become stronger, to create new weapons, to find a new opportunity.
An attempt to protect a person from vices and foolishness, limiting his access to them, has the same disadvantages as the censure of vaccinations against diseases or the idea of the need to temper and improve immunity. The immune system of that person unaware of the threats and temptations is too weak. They took off all his armor and took all his weapons. His armies are weak and untrained. Now anyone, even the weakest enemy, can easily destroy him. Any, even the most primitive, foolishness can enslave his mind. Any, even the most insignificant, temptation will force him to sell his soul to the devil.
This person living in a sterile sealed ball can no longer exist in the real world. He is too weak.
Perhaps, for the sake of democracy and love for mankind it's rational not to let weak minded take part in a vote.
Perhaps, there should be some exam and control to stop stupid people from taking part in a vote. There should be some tests of logic, knowledge of philosophy, ethics and intelligence level. It's irrational to let idiots and easily led people become puppets for cynical puppeteers.
Doing what you want and saying what you think is honesty and sincerity. It is often a good weapon that is almost always effective. However, it is desirable to understand why you do it and what you want to achieve.
