Most people resent people who are strong and tough -- and especially sensitive people who still manage to be strong and tough. That's because sensitivity is rare; coarseness is common. The common crowd envies the rare and wants to bring them down. They are not worth your being down. Yes, most people are pretty much worthless. Having said that, though, I'm not a misanthrope. My heart goes out to the rare sensitive ones. But the sensitive ones must be strengthened, physiologically and psychologically. Physiologically, because they must be taught to do what is good for them, physically; and psychologically, because they must not allow their spirits to be broken by lesser men. Yes, lesser men! I don't believe in equality.
The rare sensitive ones must be taught to be selfish! To think about themselves rather than about other, lesser men, even if they be large in numbers. One rare person is worth countless common people. The former must be taught a certain hardness, a toughness turned outward, so as to protect their sensitive inside, which shall be only accessible to people who are worthy of it -- to their peers. I advocate being an asshole toward assholes; but that takes a lot of self-overcoming for a sensitive person.
