The Strong Do As They Can, While The Weak Suffer As Must


The Strong Do As They Can, While The Weak Suffer As They Must


Throughout history, people have regarded strength as an admirable trait. That’s because it’s always been important for survival, security, and in seeking out the means for life.

Yet, in today’s society, where life is much more convenient than it once was, we often find people neglecting the pursuit of strength. Some even characterize the pursuit of strength as a form of oppression.

In this episode, Chris discusses strength in the context of Thucydides’ History of the Peloponnesian War through three different theoretical lenses: realism, neoliberalism, and post-modernism. From there, he takes it back to the individual level and discusses why strength should be the focus of our pursuits here on this Earth.

He delivers three pieces of advice for keeping yourself strong in an environment and a society that seems to be encouraging weakness.
