  I wonder why you think that kind of world is the world we should all live
  in and why, as either a premise or a consequence, you think this is
  "normal".  I tend to believe it is a premise to you, not a consequence,
  but this ties right back to my position that how you look a lot of things
  in life depends on whether you think you will become one of the "haves"
  or one of the "have-nots", or associate with which groups.  That simple
  attitude shift may well set the tone for your entire outlook on life.

  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
