those who remain
“Hard times create strong men. Strong men create good times. Good times create weak men. And, weak men create hard times.”
— G. Michael Hopf, Those Who Remain
There was never a time in history when humans were weaker than they are today, physically, psychologically and morally …and so the analogy of Mr. Hopf describes where we are at, predicts what follows and explains why this cycle is so hard to break.
There is another way to read the citation by G. Michael Hopf.
Life will be hard for those who follow the weak and Life will be hard for those who become soft. And so solution is obvious, is it not?
“Do not wish it were easier, wish you were better!”
— Marck Goran Lorencin
