Cultivate both kindness and ruthlessness and distribute them appropriately


By J.D. BradleyPublished 2 years ago 1 min read

Be kind, and compassionate,

above all else, and when it's time,

be ruthlessly brutal

and unforgiving

Feed the hungry and

tip the waiter well

Shake every motherfucker's hand

that looks like they want to be your friend

Buy them a drink

Be kind,

and compassionate

and magnanimous

then ruthlessly stomp the living fuck

out of those who would organize against you

that have conspired to your detriment

or the detriment of the general public

We have too many wolves

and not enough sheepdogs.
