I don't understand--are you saying compassion is need to make someone a whole person? that's not true. compassion will make them a better person, yes, but an incompassionate person is still whole to begin with. i am getting into things I don't fully know about here, but didn't macchiavelli say: First rule to be a king: get rid of the compassion. better feared than loved?
Ionell is stating what he is, whether it is sincere or even if he himself understands wtf he is saying, that i don't know.
Only if you can't be both.
