Does might make right?

Not a @#$%ing chance. (But there’s a catch.)

As far as I can tell, the might-makes-right crowd are wrong. By definition.

Truth, beauty, reason. All occur naturally. There is no need to force them to exist using might.

Ugliness, evil, lies. These are what require might. They go against human nature, so they have to be forced onto the world.

Might doesn’t make right. Or else you wouldn’t need the might.


It’s pretty @#$%ing difficult to resist evil if you don’t have any might yourself.

Might doesn’t make a home invasion rape/torture right. But try stopping that from happening without some might of your own.

The choices

So your choices are thus:

  • Stay as you are. And hope that nobody picks you as their target.

Given those options, my recommendation would be – go be mighty.

Not through speeches and majority decisions will the great questions of the day be decided … but by iron and blood.  – Otto von Bismarck
