The Strength Sign appends to the "Peace Sign" a means in which to achieve Peace. The Peace Sign is a great reminder that peace ought to be pursued. However, if the end goal is peace, what are the means in which to achieve this state?

Surely peace-at-any-cost is not the answer because, with time, that would form an unsustainable cycle of being taken advantage of which ultimately leads to a state of being quite apart from peace. The solution to this problem is obvious, be strong!

In times of dire circumstance, the most influential figures in history turn to a philosophy for guidance in order to overcome the difficulties that presented themselves; the philosophy of strength. Military strategist Sun Tzu is known for his book The Art of War in which he imparts timeless wisdom for "breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting." He writes, "if their forces are substantial, prepare for them; if their forces are strong, avoid them." Peace exists for the strong because nobody wants to fight or take advantage of the strong. Therefore, quoting Aristotle, "we make war that we may live in peace." If the goal is peace, strength is the means.

Strength comes in many forms. Military strength may be one of those forms, but it is not the only one. Strength in daily life is needed to combat the daily battles to be encountered. Personal security, physical strength, mental focus and moral soundness all work together to help bring about the peace in life that is sought after. This is what is meant by Peace Through Strength. The Strength Sign products all serve as reminders to keep physically, mentally and morally strong.

03. Give Strength A Chance

Strength Sign Peace Through Strength Aristotle
Aristotle is known as one of the greatest and most influential thinkers of all time.

"We make war that we may live in peace."
-- Aristotle


All we are saying is give strength a chance, and peace will follow as a byproduct. Without work there would be no conception of leisure. Without war there would be no conception of peace.
Although many wars have been fought, the spirit of those that fought and died for a sustainable peace lives. Therefore, Strength can be defined as the physical, mental and moral integrity needed to be able to deter an enemy from considering an attack.

Strength Sign has the slogan of Peace Through Strength in order to remind that without war there would not be peace. Likewise, in order to maintain that state of peace, Strength is needed to deter an enemy from considering an attack. Strength Sign merchandise serves as a daily reminder to keep physically, mentally and morally strong.
