Cool

I disagree with Tannhauser.

I believe that sometimes popular culture entertainment reflects reality.

How many Olde Tyme Westerns have you seen, where the Man manfully—if inarticulately—insists that:

"A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do."

While some wailing Female begs him to put Survival ahead of Honour?

Yamamoto Tsunetomo says in "The Hagakure":

"Cowards theorize with the goal of staying alive firmly in mind."

Every man should read and reread works like "The Hagakure" until they can recite large sections of them Verbatim.

Women might be able to adopt the way of Bushido and live their lives ready to die instantly and without regret—at any moment, simply for Honour...

But I sincerely doubt it.

Since Women are stuck on "Stupid"...

That is they consistently choose safety, security and survival over Honour...

Their having any say at all in important matters is little short of Disaster.

{Don't show me Women Soldiers—A Modern Day Soldier is a far cry from an Apache Warrior or a Samurai.}
