    In actual as well as metaphorical terms, it's an either or universal, dichotomous proposition. Why? Because any human being attempting to straddle the "line in the sand" runs the risk ...[text shortened]... pacitation of vital organs in the nether region of the body commonly referred to as the "groin".
    I'm still confused; this line in your OP divides your choice of "civilisation" from what?

    Has someone upset you with what you think is "jungle savagery" here on the General Forum? Have you alerted the posts in question? What did Russ and his people say?

    So you are saying that you prefer "civilisation" to "jungle savagery"?

    What you quote Tony Robbins as saying in your OP is a completely ludicrous false dichotomy.
    Post three pages on why you think so.

    With links.

    On which side are you and why?
    I'd always heard that it referred to an incident during the invasion of Egypt in 168 BC by Antiochus IV Epiphanes of Syria. The Egyptians appealed to Rome for help, and instead of sending an army, they sent a single envoy - Gaius Popillius Laenas. He met Antiochus about four miles from Alexandria, and in front of his whole army, drew a line in the sand around him. He told Antiochus it was the decision of the Roman Senate that he withdraw from Egypt. Antiochus wanted time to consider, but Poppilius demanded his answer before he stepped across the line. Antiochus withdrew his army to Syria.
