Somebody is giving this dude bad PR advice.
(Also, lol, did you see the physiognomy of their “body language analyst”? Holy shit dude.)
When your PR person is giving you worse advice than an autistic schizoid blogger it’s time to rethink your personnel decisions.
Entire societies have made the maintenance of status, and more particularly of “honour,” a primary task of every adult male. Whether called, as in traditional Greek village society, time, as in Muslim communities, sharaf, or among Hindus, izzat, honour was expected in all cases to be upheld through violence. In traditional Spanish communities, to be worthy of honra, a man had to be physically brave, sexually potent, predatory towards women before he was married and loyal thereafter, able to look after his family financially and authoritative enough towards his wife to ensure that she did not have sex or even engage in flirtatious banter with other men. Dishonour was the penalty not only for infringing on codes oneself but also for failing to respond with appropriate fury to an injuria inflicted by another. If one was ridiculed in the market square or given an offensive look in the street, doing anything short of soliciting a fight would only confirm the offenders’ point.

Emphasis added. Also, when you read this does the attitude remind you of anyone?
Somebody needs to tell Kavanaugh that we aren’t living in the land of boy scouts. This is the real world and they have a different set of values here. Frankly, it’s a testament to the heredity of aristocracy in America that such a naive person was tolerated in Washington for so long. At least he wasn’t actually hiding anything though, Trump made a good strategic decision by picking Principal Skinner. If the NSA had anything they’d have leaked it already.
Kavanaugh, do yourself a favor and keep your mouth shut as much as possible. You’re a lost puppy treading water in the middle of the ocean. Nobody on earth cares if you’re good, they only care if you’re strong. If you’re going to be good, keep it between you and God as much as possible because it’s blood in the water.
