The following is from a copyrighted newsletter by Bill Bonner. I find it so insightful that I have to pass it on. I sure hope it’s “fair use” under the copyright laws:
Neither limits nor adversity are what ruin men. Under pressure, they handle themselves pretty well. It’s the lack of limits they can’t handle. That’s when they run amok. So, if you really want to see what a man is made of let him think he can get away with something.
How true! And how much of our recent past this explains. Perhaps such reflections will make it easier to embrace the coming adversity.
