it is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both.
Either your try or you don't. If you try, there is a potential for success and failure. If you never try, your success rate is exactly 0%
Fine, I admit that I am using my own interpretations in my last comment, but that statement is a false dichotomy. Just because I succeed 0% when I don't do anything, doesn't mean I miss 100%. I also miss 0%. A person who never plays basketball doesn't lose 100% of his NBA games. He wins none and he loses none.
First, you're just imposing assumed motive onto the speaker. Second, your logic works both ways, you can't fail if you don't try, but you also can't succeed.
No. You miss 0% of the shots you don't take because there is nothing for you to miss at the start. This dude is acting like as if I am SUPPOSED to take shots indefinitely but I have no moral obligations to take shots. I don't miss them if I don't take any. I don't get rejected by girls when I don't even ask them out. Simple logic.

Ironic that Andrei Sator is currently on my TV right now. Instant disproof.
No that's never happened to me. Try contacting a mod maybe.
i'm frustrated. i submitted my first round two days ago, and for some reason it did not post. i am trying to recover my initial round because i do not want to rewrite the entire thing. is this a common glitch on dart?
I'm really expecting some Machiavellian evidence from The Prince about this topic. He gave several examples in the book, and a bit about the nature of love and fear. I don't want to give arguments so I won't say what specifically.
I am expecting a personal relationship angle in this debate.
Read The Prince lately?
Guess who was one of them? Hitler.
