Survival OR Self Dignity
August 9, 2010 7:27pm CST
When do you have to live for Survival and when do you have to stand for your Self-dignity? Some says, everyday of Life, everything in Life is just "survival of the fittest". But I say, when is fit fittest? how do we measure fittest?; Is material things and all the tangible in life enough to survive? or would you chose to live as the human being with innate human dignity?

I always stand for my self-dignity. Survival, i believe, is only for animals. "Survival of the fittest" is a term used to describe the way of life in the animal kingdom. I won't stoop or resort to dirty tricks/ tactics just to have my way or as you say, survive, in this world. I value my dignity more than any material things. I'm born human thus, i'll leave this world with my humanity and dignity intact.

Hi aina66, As a human being we people should not leveled ourselves with animals that thinks only for their survival. We as the highest form of creature here on Earth are more capable of understanding things more than what our five senses can give us and this is our "Dignity." However, we cannot also change the fact that we are not immortals we also need food and others necessities to live and that is "Survival." There is no absolute thing in life; it is always a case to case basis. Remember that too much of something is bad. We need to balance things, study the pros and cons before we decide.
