“Could one choose between honesty or deception to play a role in one’s friendship life? Why not choose honesty? Perhaps if one despises intellectualism, is their alternative to be an idiot? Of course. Then, the answer should be as obvious as to live or to die. If one rejects individualism, then their only other option is to be a slave among a collective herd. That non-individual would have no other course besides the one everyone adheres to.
If one says the words, ‘Both extremes are bad’, then perhaps one should take the objectively good, fall upon that as the leaning, and never make it necessary to be an extreme.”– Modern Romanticism
