Extremely intersting.

I have believed for a long time that individuals experience growth through pain and struggle. Much like a muscle, we only get stronger through difficult exertion.

It just might be that those countries that play it too safe actually do more harm than good in the long run.

This provides no comfort for those that live through the pain nor does it necessarily mean that the pain is felt equally but it is insightful that the more free we might be, the more mistakes we are likely to make, but the better off as a country we might be.
