"Yes, I am ruthless.
I am ruthless in the sense that I see no need for people to suffer.
I see no need for people to live lives of 'if only...' or 'I could have been...'
Or for somebody to be on their deathbed and realize that they had something to give, they had something to contribute. They had something of themselves to express that never got expressed.
I’m ruthless, ruthlessly against that, ruthlessly for people having ALL of it.”
-- Werner Erhard
