Could be worse. I remember a while back some posters calling Tom Brady beta in a different thread.

Like Mandela, he was an armed rebel against his country's oppressive regime before being imprisoned for years, much of the time in solitary confinement. Being isolated and apart from society for that long is going to have a massive influence on a man's psyche. The search for a deeper purpose and a Zen-like existence become paramount by necessity, since there is nothing to entertain or distract you.

This speech encapsulates his essence.




I recommend listening to it in the original Spanish. From 6:10 to 10:00 or so is a fantastic takedown of modern Western workaholic consumerist culture.


Nice. There's a good vice doc about him too:
