A society suffers when it's men grow weak. This pair encourages the wearer to speak Truth, or else be devoured by Death. We are designed to to climb higher and fight through pain and betrayal to reach our full potential. Life is not meant to be a sideline sport of envious, collectivist sneering, but rather a service oriented journey towards the heavens; only through individual struggle can we build the joyous communities boasted in strong economies of trust-necessary cooperation. Culture is not accidental--it is the process of millions of souls making individual decisions as each is pulled by the forces of strength and weakness, good and evil, short-term and long-term vision.
We are are at a critical time in history to honor the values and struggles of our mothers and fathers, while discerning the nuances of a never-treaded landscape. Peace is only possible through strength.
