Mankind has pulled itself out of the caves and survived the worst of human catastrophes all because one person, at a turning point in history, had the utter arrogance to say no to what everyone else just passively accepted.
Their courage strengthened the resolve of those around them allowing mankind to stumble forward and challenge the beliefs about what was possible. This takes a certain amount of arrogance and denial of the “truth” about what is possible.
On the other side of the argument, the arrogant have led mankind into history’s greatest disasters. It is not the arrogance itself that is the problem. It is how the arrogance is directed.
Bless the arrogant, for in the moments of greatest need, only the arrogant are willing to stand up, spit in the eye of the devil, and move mankind a little bit further along toward higher values and greater kindness, love, and compassion.
Curse the arrogant for, at turning points in history, they stood and spit in they eye of God and led mankind toward destruction, death, and atrocity.
Humility has its place. It takes arrogance to stand in the face of certain death and choose to live.
This form of arrogance is also known as courage.
