People say all the time that you can’t fight fire with fire, that hate won’t destroy hate.
I’m here to tell you that’s bullshit. This quote right here…
“A lot of people want to ‘fight fire with fire’, but the fact is that doesn’t work.
Water is used to fight fires and hate won’t destroy hate.”
~David G. McAfee
…doesn’t use a valid argument against fire fighting fire, it just illustrates the limitations of a metaphor. We’re not really talking about fire, we’re talking about violence.
When it comes to that, there’s one thing you can be sure of:
If you’re willing to go farther in a conflict than the opposition, you win.
That’s just how the world works. Feel however you want to about it, but don’t expect it to change. Fire fights fire all the time, and a lot of those pyromancers win.
