Inspired by Rudyard Kipling

in #steemit3 years ago

Rudyard Kipling was a novelist who wrote the story Jungle Book. In this book is a code for the wolves who live in the jungle. It comes in the form of prose and is called the law of the jungle. This term has been taken out of context over the years and has come to mean the opposite of its original source. While most people would consider the law of the jungle to mean "survival of the fittest," it is actually a nod to community support. Within the prose is a line that has always struck a chord with me:

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

This quote is about community. About supporting one another. Steemit can feel like a jungle at times. And the law of this jungle can truly feel like dog-eat-dog or whale-eat-minnow as the case may be. But it doesn't have to be that way. We can have our own code. One that hearkens back to the original intent and context of Kipling's words. Where we are a pack that supports each other. Where we lift each other up and encourage one another. With this in mind, it is hopeful that the words in this blog will offer some support and encouragement to those who read it.
