The stag is a mighty beast powerful yet tranquil, strong with stamina to continue its existence. The stag watches over its lands protecting it from unwanted advances and threats from outsiders. In confrontation it tries to startle its foe with pure theatrical displays and mental strength of endurance. If physical contact is required the stag will not give up unless hurt beyond recovery to claim its prize, victory celebrations of a calling out to the herd will reinforce and secure the winners position as alpha.
The stag is found in many cultures across the world and never more so displayed then in a place where young men and women coincide in large groups for instance College, university, nightclubs even pubs. This trait in humanity also spills out onto our streets! It’s the innate instinct to protect a false territory. That is to say the youths take it upon themselves that they have the right to defend their haunts from outsiders who may venture in, in particular if those outsiders appear to be of lesser stature. Poverty, poor upbringing and lack of adequate education are the most likely causes for adolescence to display these traits so vigorously. This instinct will probably always be there but we could help to soften it through education.
