Yes, it's unlikely that anyone is going to make an armed run at our throne anytime soon. But people will make pointed remarks. They will cut us off in traffic. Our rivals will steal our business. We will be hurt. Forces will try to hold us back. Bad stuff will happen.
We can turn even this to our advantage. Always.
It is an opportunity. Always.
And if our only option - as was the case with Marcus - because of someone else's greed or lust for power, is simply to be a good person and practice forgiveness? Well, that's still a pretty good option.
