The problem, of course, is now it’s been some years, and the orcs have forgotten all about us (too busy killing each other), and the people have become experimental. As it turns out, respecting your neighbor is not a necessity for inner strength. In fact, some would argue that respecting only yourself is the key to truly unlocking the powers of the, well, self. Go figure.
