Well, far be it from me to agree with Ms. Jantsang, but I can't help but 
agree with her on the above point. 
I think there is something wonderful about the ONA grade rituals, and the 
way in which they chose to personify "defiance." In one sense they remind 
me of G. Gordon Liddy in "Will." They're bona fide badasses; like the 
Chevaliers of old. Death before dishonor! Molon Labe!

On the other hand, one can also read such "defiance" as making excuses for 
personal failings and a lack of self control. For example, it's a great 
thing to be able to say you smashed every face that you don't approve of 
like some kind of silverbacked gorilla. In my opinion, it is a far, far 
greater thing to have the psychological mastery to obtain all that you 
desire in the world. What is the point in petty psychological dominance 
games, when you can achieve real world power over people? Better yet; why 
should I engage in preposterous monkey dominance games with people when I 
can gain power and control my own destiny? I know I can outshoot, 
outfight, outhink and outfuck 99.99% of humanity; and I know I have more 
charachter and will than they do. I really don't need any further 
reassurances of this. I waste less of my time by simply laughing at the 
unworthy. We're only allotted a limited amount of time: we must choose the 
enemy wisely. It may be more important than chosing your friends.

good for you."-Bon Scott
