Well, not everyone fights for what they lack, for most people do not know what they lack. And most of us lack the most rudimentary accoutrements of freedom. In the words of Goethe,
“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free”.GOETHE
If what you call fighting for honor equates to the people of France, The Netherlands, and Ireland voting against the Eurozone constitution while their respective governments ignore them out of convenience, I think you have just answered your own question.
I fight not for honor but to create a better world than I found for my offspring and yours by strengthening human evolution, the antithesis of what our currently flawed and outdated operating systems of humanity proliferate.
