The creatures in this world can be divided into two categories: the hunters and the hunted. This holds true for humans as well. Men are either preying on other men or they are the prey. They are either the wolves or the sheep. The sense of reason that the men possess adds a layer of complexity to their needs. An animal is motivated by the desire for food, sex, and shelter; the interests of men, on the other hand, is fueled by their lust for power, pleasure, and property. The ultimate avenue for acquiring power, pleasure, and prosperity is politics which is generally dominated by men who have mastered the art of pandering to the vices of the wolves and the fears of the sheep to get what they want.
