When asked, most people say they would rather be a hammer than a nail, until you remind them the function of a nail is union, the function of a hammer is simply brute force. Amirite?

but isn't it the hammer that accelerates the union?
the nail and hammer complement each other

the function of the hammer allows for the function of the nail

@VicZinc You can only be one. Choose, hammer or nail?

I don't know
I feel like I'm missing the whole point

Good. If someone simply asked you (no context) would you rather be a hammer or a nail? Many (most) people would quickly answer hammer. But, as you point out the hammer is an oppressor. So after contemplation, the answer is not that easy. That is the point of the post. It is not as easy a question as if first appears.

Being a nail would hurt... but I guess being a hammer would too... but the nail could get deformed.

@VicZinc And the hammer can chip, or break.

The hammers I use have metal ends that don't chip or break when hammering...

Can I be both hammer and nail... looking for a good piece of wood?

The hammer is the unionizing force!
