First I would just like to say that its been such a long time since I entered into debate on anything so I am really enjoying the opportunity to debate on this statement.
I think that the statement "What does not kill me makes me stronger" is still open to analysis.
If you take anything that causes injury whether mentally or physically to a human being then it must have a destructive effect on that human. Either weakens the human being mentally or physically. The only thing that it strengthens is resolve in thinking or attitude. For example if breathing in toxic fumes makes you asthmatic it may not kill you but it doesn't make your lungs stronger it makes your body weaker but perhaps your resolve stronger to fight against the people that caused the damage and reduced your quality of life.
So if the Apologist for raw industry made that statement in public in current times I would hope that reports of his inadequacies in understanding of the human species would be published.
