Were like cop car partners we may disagree about a lot of things, we have different interests but we we are interdependent, on some fundamental levels such as survival we need each. Other to survive we have each other's backs were were you know radically loyal to each other. Because we can be and because we exist in a world that is not going to be with us so it's this is an adult agreement. Between people who could do otherwise but they elect. To be experts on each other protect each, other from each other in from everybody else and we have examples of this all over the world.
