THE WOLF

``Now is the Law of the Jungle---as old and true as the sky;

And the wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the wolf that shall break it must die.

As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk, the Law runneth forward and back---

For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.''

Rudyard Kipling


Even when there is a strong leader it is best to work together as a team to better succeed and reach your goals.

Yes, thanks for putting it in context, Kitten.

We are reminded that War is also "The Law of the Jungle," and that in War men employ the same tactics as wolves. Specifically, I am thinking about "Wolfpacks," the submarine warfare tactic first developed by the Germans and later imitated by the U.S. Submarine packs of six to ten boats--imitating a wolfpack--could do more damage to large convoys in a coordinated attack by the "pack" than a single sub could do acting alone (Like a "lone wolf.")

Fortunately, men have also found peaceful lessons in Nature." Biomimicry or biomimetics is the examination of nature, its models, systems, processes, and elements to emulate or take inspiration from in order to solve human problems. The term biomimicry and biomimetics come from the Greek words bios, meaning life, and mimesis, meaning to imitate. Other terms often used are bionics, bio-inspiration, and biognosis." (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biomimicry)

Nature need not always be "red in tooth and claw."

Rudyard Kipling must have been a student of Gestalt Theory: The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Several of his writings incorporate this theme----literally and metaphysically.

There are a lot of Republicans who would disagree - go it alone they say.

Fortes in unitate!

This the perfect retort to Homo homini lupus est. It is nearly perfect in the way it expresses that the success of the individual and the success of the group are mutually dependent on each other, and not essentially antagonistic.

Thank you, kitten, for retrieving the stanza.

Note to self:

Rudyard Kipling deserves a mention in the "Favorite Authors" thread for his more subtle use of satire than Jonathan Swift or Oscar Wilde.
