WWSP's "The Alternate Boot!"

That's a Win!

Can you kill/neutralize your enemies with kindness?  It's a risky strategy.  You know that they know that you know... that they'd rather see you dead.  And you plow ahead and just show kindness and generosity and deference whenever they are around anyway.

Machiavelli did counsel to keep your friends close and your enemies even closer.  And the Dali Lama would say that you must put down your arms, drop your defenses.  

Still it gets a little claustrophobic... and isn't it all just a double-game?  Maybe so.  So you come and go without the armor, you bare your head, you smile.  They still hate you.  They want to destroy you.  And your kindness and generosity, doesn't sway them in the least.  And you know this...

So it's a standoff no matter what... still you get to smile and act kind and generous.  So in that way I guess it's a win...
