What makes kindness viewed as a deficiency, even something to be detested while ruthlessness


is viewed as a strength, even admired & glorified, in postmodern American culture?Remember the saying that nice people finish last.People view nice people as weaklings not worthy of respect.There are some who consider nice people to have no smarts, considering them to be ninnies.Nice people are even considered to be doormats to be abused.Meanwhile, ruthless people are admired because THEY are not ashamed to go after what they what.They are also seen as very strong in their respective endeavors & people RESPECT strength.Ruthless people emit a radar of one had better not mess with them or else..
