All cruelty springs from weakness.
Actually, most cruelty springs from unequal strength. There are exceptions. A classic example of this NOT happening is the US and Canada. If a nation as weak as Canada with all those natural resources was laying next to almost any other nation in history, they would be vassals. Most cruelty comes when a strong person or tribe or whatever, is in close proximity to a weaker person, tribe, etc. The strong takes what it desires or subjugates the weaker, just because they can. The old saying about behind every bully there is a coward is untrue. Claptrap made up by early SJWs. In some cases, yes, but in most cases, the bully is not afraid of a fair fight. The bully respects only strength and he will test you. This is a lesson American presidents seemingly have to relearn again and again. When dealing with Putin, Kim, etc, only strength will temper their aims. Do you think Putin would have tried overflying a US combat ship that closely or any of his pother little provocations if Reagan had been President?
