Does the strongest survive?

Simply surviving does not mean that you can relax. Very often survival is the start — or the continuation — of a serious, daily fight for life.

Therefore:

  • From the materialistic point of view it is not the strongest who survive but the most unpretentious and organized.
  • From the spiritual point of view it is not the strongest who survive but those whom God gave the ability or means to survive. In turn, as a rule, you now bear a greater responsibility for your own and other people’s lives.
