For John, BLUF: It isn't enough to be nice, you have to help people grow. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Mr Kyle Smith, as Acculturated talks to the question of if "niceness" is enough. Mr Smith views "niceness" as an excuse to avoid the responsibility to lead, to set standards and hold people to them. That is so Twentieth Century, or Nineteenth Century, or Eighteenth Century or, here in what was to be become the United States, the Seventeenth Century.
