Survival of the fittest. The smartest or strongest will win out. To the victor goes the spoils- to breed and harvest. The triumph and power.
This is Darwin. This is Nietzsche. This is Redbeard. The game of life is what we play and only those with the strength or intellect will emerge victorious. Plankton outnumber the whale shark by millions to one, yet the shark consumes at will.
Play the game well. Make your own rules. Step upon the throat of your vanquished enemy and ascend. That is the evolution of the species.
