We are well into that Future Shocked world.

Some say it's a scary place.

The greater the need for fancy clothing for solutions the less the value within.

"A man's got to know his limitations." Clint Eastwood said that when he played Dirty Harry in 'Magnum Force', (1973).

If you know yourself and you know your limitations then you have a fighting chance to know when you will need willpower. If you do not know your limitations then your willpower won't.
