Simon Reed was right, of course.
Kant is much easier to process, as Simon put it, ' you are better off with a maxim. Gives clarity and something concrete to discuss, shame Kant is not part of this TMA.
You flatter me, sir. There's no 'of course' about my rightness! I'm not an A222 expert, merely a survivor.
You survived A222, a course where many lesser mortals have gone under.
Much respect to you. Like you i just want to survive the course. No aspirations of enjoying it or getting a good mark. Just to survive will do me.
Survival of the dimmest will do for me.
"You survived A222, a course where many lesser mortals have gone under."
Thank you. You are right. I have spent too long dwelling on the pain of the battles and not recognised I won the war. It wasn't a glorious victory but I came through and got an A222 Medal for Persistence. I found it damn hard but I carried on and I passed and that is all that matters. I shouldn't be bitter, I should be proud of myself.
I have always had more respect for people who struggle and just make it than for people who find it easy to win, but I don't think I've ever applied that to myself.
Thank you for changing my perspective.
Surviving A222 is my aim. Just have to grind it out.
Rather like those digital badges you can earn on openlearn, when i have the time i might pop onto easley.com and make a A222 foot soldier badge and a A222 survivor e-badge.
Just for fun.
