to be abrasive and sometimes rude.
I will say this, despite his displays
of political incorrectness, dude is
sick and tired of the apathy that is
plaguing our society, regarding getting
off one's ass and making a difference in
one's own life.
While I gravitate more towards the perspective
of how social forces shape one's destiny and

into place to ensure everyone has a fair shot at
succeeding, Bro believes man must force him-
self to shape his own destiny (much like Sartre),
regardless of disadvantages.
There's room for both perspectives if we all could
just engage in a civil dialogue and listen to one
another, as well as to what we are attempting
convey to each other.
