Sitting on the printer gives you control of the paper.
And annoys your person when you play with the buttons
and keep printing out test pages.
Control the messenger and you control the message, right?
Intimidate others and you silence them, making yourself appear all the bigger, all the stronger.
Too many people are silenced by people who simply have the luxury of being able to outlast others.
Remember, the moderates rarely care enough to engage in the exchanges in the first place.
It's only those passionately committed who take the time and effort to keep battling.
All you have to do to win is be the more extreme.
In other words, right doesn't always win.
The good guy doesn't always save the day.
Sometimes assholes win just because they're assholes.
And that, my friends, sucks.
We almost all of us believe in the just world fallacy.
Learning it is not a just world is a painful eye-opener.
Not letting it dampen your resolve, though, is imperative.
