In days gone by, the measure of a man was perhaps in his hunting prowess.
Going out into the wilderness, facing daily danger to bring food back to his tribe and family.
As the years have gone by, the measure has changed. With the advent of shops and supermarkets, modern man no longer has to stalk and hunt his prey.
So other measures have variously been used; His educational status, the money he earns, the clothes he wears, the car he drives. You name it.
Now I reckon there’s a new, modern-day candidate for the measure.
