    Your "stylus" seems stuck in the same "groove/line". Somebody give him/her a bump.

    Robbins' false dilemma is daft.

    On the side of "civilization" (civility) because the alternative of reverting to jungle savagery at home, our neighborhoods and online is unthinkable . And you?

    In actual as well as metaphorical terms, it's an either or universal, dichotomous proposition. Why? Because any human being attempting to straddle the "line in the sand" runs the risk of serious injury and/or incapacitation of vital organs in the nether region of the body commonly referred to as the "groin".

    What you quote Tony Robbins as saying in your OP is a completely ludicrous false dichotomy.

    Are you upset with someone again, Grampy Bobby? Is that what this thread is about?

    I'm still confused; this line in your OP divides your choice of "civilisation" from what?
