When and why to become a Monster

In the world we live in, the longer you live and the more you care inevitably leads us down the path of becoming a bit of a monster. It is, by far, the only way to have convictions in the face of constant attack. As we were always taught, its the winners who write history. The losers only get to sit at home, grow old in the winners world forcing themselves to feel content in the knowledge they had not become mosters, even for a little while. It is the strong, the ones who lead to good change, who understand how to, for a time, become a monster while maintianing the humanity and intelligence to know when that monster must die and their old, more gentle self be allowed to awaken from its slumber.
