The shrewd, social panderer and the haughty, anti-social refuser, though appear to be opposites, are actually the same: dishonest. They actually work together: it is not uncommon for the latter to employ the former. Together, they manipulate the crowd for shallow gain. Though they may lead and inspire, their true aims are to please and control.
Who must return are the tactful, warrior heroes and the genuine, contemplative leaders, while resembling the above pair, are different in that they live for truth. They work together, and lead / reign in the crowd toward transcendental gain. Though they may lie and control, their true aims are to lead and inspire.
In your daily life, strive in every way to be honest. Dishonesty breeds solipsism, relativism, temporary alliances, many enemies, and in the end confusion. Honesty breeds holism, unity, lasting friendships, and no enemies -- just challenges on the pathways toward your goals.
