"hmmm, from at least my perspective, no one said anything was easy. You could call it oversimplifying, and you'd be right. Like I said, this is out of my depth, but it seems similar to the phrase "love yourself" in general. Everyone…"

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
