Extract from a series of essays on the notion of 'Superstruggle' - 1992-3:
Once engaged in superstruggle it will consume you. Superstruggle affects every aspect of life: what represents success and failure; right and wrong; family, friends and enemies.
Superstruggle heightens the emotional and physical senses and teaches an awareness of human frailty, the power of spirituality, and that the greatest thing is to know yourself. Within superstruggle the ultimate penalty is paid not with your life, but with your soul. We cannot not move forward by just surviving: humanity also has the capacity to achieve a greater good.
A superstruggler has done more than save themself. At its most simplistic - a single mother raising a child to be a decent human being. At its most complex - a hero from poverty saving a nation. The struggle within the struggle is to be excellent at winning. To name a few would not be enough.Russell Newell
