Do you know why humans are the dominant species on the planet? Because we struggled more.
Other animals had the advantage of being stronger and faster than us, so we struggled for a good portion of history. But in that struggle we started learning, and through that we became smarter, and through that became the most dominant species on Earth.
Without struggle there is no education.
There’s nothing to overcome if there is no struggle. But give man struggle, and watch him learn. And give man continuous struggle, and watch him not only learn but master.
Struggle is not an option, it’s a biological requirement.
