A comment from reader Purge on my podcast article.
Terrence Popp is a member of the Army Special Operations who came home from one of several tours of duty to dind that his wife blew up their marriage. And Vox calls people like that “cowards”?
Yeah, Vox is an asshole.
Vox’s point is not that Popp or men like him are cowards, but that there are different types of courage and cowardice. A man can be courageous on the field of battle but a coward at home under his own roof against his wife. One does not necessarily equate to the other. Perhaps an aspect of wisdom is knowing where your own courage lies.
