25. Sing the song of the one whose bread you eat !
The proverb voices the life experience that if your existence depends on your superordinate, you must sing his/her song; in other words, you must behave as they require. A good example could be children in the family or employees at work. The situation of thralls in the medieval times was much worse, and ancient slaves were not taken for humans at all - they were just things treated as exclusive ownership of the slaver. Nowadays, people are subordinated to the state power. However, the state power has never been - and will never be - the primary and highest bread donator. It is the Nature that had programmed the grain and the human and created conditions for their growth - the Sun and the Earth. These conditions include the song of Nature, represented by the natural and social moral Law- also called the order (hereafter the Law) - that one does not have to follow, within the freedom of choice donated to you by the Nature. Anyway, the rule is that you will harvest what you had sown.
Unequal stories of life and life conditions in the life of individuals, families, nations and races are obvious, but just this -not knowing the primary causes (not singing the song of Law) - is not enough to state that a rightful order in the development of humankind does not really exist. The fact that you do not know something cannot be taken for a proof that something exists - or does not exist. Denying the existence of a rightful order opens an undesirable door in human mind - opens the door to crime, amorality and totality. Only after you are mature enough to recognise the Law, and when you - voluntarily - begin adjust your thinking, feelings, objectives, words and deeds to the Law, despite inner and outer obstacles - only after that you begin creating a borderline in your mind, the line which tells democrats from non-democrats. The same borderline - or perhaps wall - separates the world views: more specifically, distinguishes the democratic world view from the others, non-democratic ones. Good life, safe life, life without poverty and debts is lived only by people who sing the song of Nature, not the song of personal or group selfishness.
