“You must look at the comrade next to you, look into his eyes; I bet you will see there a man determined to gain ground with you, that you will see there a man who will willingly sacrifice for this team, knowing that when the time comes you will do the same for him. That is being a team my lords. So either we rise up now as a collective, or we will be annihilated individually.”
