Abstract

This essay attempts both a first step and a paradigmatic leap, a yank and a dodge. In it, I refuse to give lip service to the belief that nice guys finish last, but I also challenge the assumption that last guys finish nice. We cannot escape our own empowerment; we must decide for ourselves if we should share glory and at what price. Can we halve our cake and eat it too? After all, even strikes are matters of intersubjective perception. To choose whether to swing and what to take may be the only way to reach the big time.
