it has come up several times in several threads


about how some people 'dont have what it takes' to get something done



to my recollection - only one person admitted that they would not do what they believe it would take to affect a change in this society

that kind of honesty is honorable - as long as it doesnt lead to stagnation



i started a thread about jail that got misinterpreted and sent in the wrong direction
but
the tone i was trying to set was to determine the difficulties that people may have to face when trying to correct the imbalances that we are experiencing in this society


so tell me
amongst the type of folks who find benefit in building online -

what is soft?
what does it mean to 'have what it takes'

i know a lot of folks who are on the verge of bursting
and
all it means currently is that they wind up in one of 4 places
1 - the dirt
2 - the streets
3 - jail
4 - the hospital



is a suicide bomber getting something done?

ive heard about a lot of suicide bombings
but
this planet is still heading in the same direction


bravery vs stupidity


add on

peace

could people interpret the opposite of soft being bravery or mere stupidity?

that would be a vague conclusion, hence you promted the question what soft means in itself.

is a person soft if he ommits in doing something although he could have done something?
is it soft to ommit in doing something if he deeply feels its best not to intervene and let nature to take its course?

if you think that something is the correct course of action, but that such a course of action would be futile, then you are not being soft. if you do it, you may be brave, but then again you may in some circumstances be stupid.

yep, if you do something you are assumed to be brave, and by judgement of history, interpreted as stupid perhaps.

not doing it, is perhaps soft, but the opposite of stupid perhaps also!

peace denaturat!

having what it takes, having what it takes to be you and do what you feel is right. what many see as doing the right thing will be seen as stupid somwhere in the world.

backing out after going in is soft or going in not wanting to.
