Q23. J15. the tough guys are the truly effeminate ones

Quote of the day

The more someone has espoused the cause of his own aggregation, the more perfectly he represents the repressive society. In this sense more than in any other, perhaps the proposition is true that the most individual is the most general.

In the end the tough guys are the truly effeminate ones, who need the weaklings as their victims in order not to admit that they are like them.
In making all without exception, even supposed subjects, its objects, this principle becomes totally passive, virtually feminine.
