Whoa. That's deep.

I had another really interesting dream last night.  I can't remember it all, but here is what I remember....

I am on the Titanic.  (Yea, that Titanic.  Except there was no Jack, Rose or intense love story.  But there was an iceberg.)  Lucky for me, I was on first class. Unlucky for me, this all happened after the ship hit the iceberg.  I was at dinner with someone, I don't know who or why really, but he was a member of the crew and former military.  I guess the leak in the boat was so slow at this point and no one really thought it was going to sink that they decided to keep on as normal as possible.  Weird.  Anyway, during dinner the conversation turned to how one of the captains (or something) had slapped my dinner companion earlier that evening for something that did not involve my companion.  I was going on about the injustice of that action when some man at the table pointed out that "Isn't it his right to strike his subordinates?  If he thinks they have done wrong then they should be stricken."

My companion and myself were silent for a second then I leaned over and whispered in his ear "It's OK.  Tell him why he's wrong."  My companion then said "If you try to rule through fear, you get fearful men.  Fearful men do horrible thing out of their fear.  If you rule through justice, you get men of integrity."  After that I don't remember much except being cold.

Thanks to my narcolepsy, my dreams can be as deep as the ocean.  (Get it?  Aw, I am made of the funnies!)
