An argument won by force is no real win, but is a sham masquerading as truth. As soon as bullies face real arguments, they merely flex more muscle instead of exerting the effort of thinking things out and through in a reasonable manner. Bullies fear truth and so will suppress it in unrighteousness, for it is not truth they want, but power. Herein always lies the danger of an establishment, whether it be in government, in society as a whole, or in other institutions. Power is not ours to desire; truth is ours to pursue. The only one who perfectly maintains both power and truth is God.
