|One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche|

He never faced real adversity, just demanding teachers, harmless public arguments, peer pressure, and a few irate customers who mostly wanted to be acknowledged as important. His solutions were exclusively social, using words and depending upon structured civilization, such as deferring to law, lawyers, and passive norms when situations became intense.
Aggressive assertions were polished with rhetoric, drama, insults, insinuations, and the thrill of shit talking. It was bold posture. He was lulled and seduced by the daily company of coddled eunuchs and castratos, all of whom were raised comfortably, ideologized, and taught phrases to repeat -- none which originated from the real world, and thus they knew nothing about what they lived among. They were accustomed to processed food and inauthentic environments, not the wild, and had been tamed until they had no skills for the natural.
As long as everyone was this soft, no one could get hurt, other than having their pronoun overlooked or their adopted beliefs mocked. To keep this softness safe, everything strong would have to be enchained, banished, or destroyed. This also meant these marshmallows would be totally unfamiliar with anything strong if they ever had the misfortune of encountering it. Thus the system cultivated them as prey -- out of kindness and good intentions, as it always claimed.
Forces of nature do not yield to rules written on paper.
No free man tolerates being trampled upon. Bullies trample from the assumption they will not be hit back, just as mobs trample expecting to avoid retaliation for what they knowingly do. The trampler expects a one-way exchange and the offender seeks the joy of hurting others without any risk to himself.
In all natural relations, irresolvable conflict is only settled by force. All laws shrink before a punch in the face. A punch appears from the wild with undeniable impact, like extreme weather phenomena that can be abstractly studied but its eruptive impact must be felt primally to become understood. Education without fundamentals only gives the illusion of knowledge.
Whatever happens with a fight educates about the grievance the other party did not properly respect. Talk smack, get smacked. Those who can't physically stand by their claims can try running their mouth while assuming they could outrun a personal response.
The play-acting of civility only holds if all behave decently. For a violated social contract means also rescinding all associated calm and docility. Thus your attempt to attack another's reputation is not a harmless act and perhaps today there's a guy who will teach you what your ancestors knew.
No one is their persona or avatar. They are only what they can stand up for in a fight.
Someone can snipe safely from a distance for a while, until another walks upon them for direct confrontation, and then they are uncomfortably out of their safety zone, soon to learn another perspective on terms of engagement. A balance is to be settled.
This is what every creature in nature knows. We too are students of the real world, mindful of avoiding illusions that stray far from nature, and happy to occasionally instruct.
