Mutual Understanding vs Mutual Humiliation


“Thucydides and Hobbes distinguish between three basic political passions: 1) fear; 2) the search for security, appetite, material goods, honour or pride; and 3) the search for glory, status or recognition of one’s merits or rights. The denial of these passions leads to anger.”

Pierre Hassner

Semua ingin dihormati, ingin di-“anggap”, dan ingin kenyamanan. Jika begitu, mari saling memahami (mutual understanding), bukan malah saling menghina (mutual humiliation).
