I’m in a political science department.

The advantage is that I must defend everything, including myself, exhaustively. The disadvantage is that I’m beyond exhausted.

On the defensive.

21st century defenders of State are as backwards looking as the 19th century defenders of King.

Common defenses. 

You say: “Attack me all you want, but don’t you dare say anything about my friends and family!” I hear: “Don’t you dare say anything about my friends and family—I know very well that you are speaking ill of me!”

Watch out for this one.

They implore you to be less defensive, but will not let up their offense.

The adoption of one is an aesthetic choice.

A defensive personality cannot in the least minimize pain and suffering.
