Life is a constant battle.
You are at war against the decay of your body.
You are competing for the scarce resources of wealth & power.
You are battling against others for the best romantic partner.
You even have to wage a civil war within your own mind every single day (I.e. your three brains fighting for control - Robot, Monkey, Sage)
Almost everything related to the good life faces some form of competition and war.
You need allies along the way that can step in and support each other.
Lift you up when your down.
Listen when you struggling internally.
Your trench mates in life determine who you are and where you are going.
