Another similar writing is "A Nation of Cowards" by Jeffrey Snyder (1993) http://jim.com/cowards.htm


Mad frankie fraser the old london gangster was always of the mind "people see friendlieness as a weakness and then you cut em"?
Croydon old fella
And a good old hamburg (reeperbahn) gent in that bracket was Stephan henshell!

i had not read jeffrey snyder's essay before this evening.

i thought it extremely well written, and share his sentiments and views, and find his writing most persuasive.

i enjoyed it. if i have added anything to his observations, that is enough.
