Kampf. Meaning: Struggle, fight.
Struggle for a higher position, fighting for a higher social status. Warning: there’s no reward! One must keep up with the challenge and face humiliation. One must endure the mocking. Keep up with the game, since the game always changes.
But remember, this is just ONE GAME! Don’t take it too seriously and don’t be afraid, just play. Like a giant wearing large trousers and shirt just to appear even bigger. These are the rules, play like a child! The weak will fall, but there aren’t strong ones. So who’s the winner?
