The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950), Man and Superman (1903) "Maxims for Revolutionists"

Despite the claims of Christians and post-modernists, mercy is not Hashem's main goal. Judaism is based on perfecting the world, and toward that end sometimes nastiness and even cruelty are permissible or necessary:
* Brit milah is necessary to create a connection with Hashem.
* Jews need not be vegetarians for fear of harming animals.
* Even killing humans is sometimes permissible.
