Will You Be Ready When Violence is The Only Answer?
Are you ready to respond with violence when violence is the only answer? At some point, all other options will have been exhausted. Will you be dangerous enough to put an end to the threat? "We do not rise to the level of our expectations; we fall to the level of our training."

When you're ready to level up every important area of your life and be the best version of yourself as a husband, father, businessman, and Man, join the Be The Man Masterclass & Tribe. Show notes: Only really good, really dangerous men can keep evil men and tyrants from committing atrocities on innocent people. You may think that negotiations will work, you may hope that sanctions will be enough, but there are some people who only understand violence. I am not looking for a fight.  I hope you are not looking for a fight.  But if a fight comes to my doorstep, you better believe I will come out with strength and strategy. I sincerely hope you never have to take another man’s life, but if some trash bag brings the threat of death to you or your family, be ready to send him to the next life. He has forfeited his right to remain here. But when you have become so soft with semantics that the certain usage of a pronoun offends you as though it were an act of violence against you, you set yourself up to have your face smashed in by a tyrant and a bully who is committing real acts of violence. Cultivate intellectual and verbal competence. Learn how to win with words, to persuade with paragraphs, to Influence with intelligence. Train yourself yourself to be articulate. That’s power. From CNN World: Ex-President of Russia Medvedev said,  "I believe it is obvious to intelligent people: sanctions are a myth, a threat, a figure of speech. I am fundamentally indifferent to these widely publicized restrictions of rights abroad," Medvedev said in a post on Russian social network VK on Saturdav. "The reason for the sanctions is this. It is political impotence arising from inability to change Russia's course. Also, a hope to make up for the shameful decisions like the cowardly flight from Afghanistan." Medvedev, who currently serves as deputy chairman of the Security Council, added: "These amazing prohibitions will change nothing, of course. Even the ignorant people at the State Department know this" The ex-president went on to compare the incursion into Ukraine. with Russia's militarv operation in Georgia in 2008. "The military operation] will be conducted in full, until all the obiectives the president of Russia has set out are achieved no more and no less As it was in a similar situation in 2008" he said.
