When a young child asks “Father, who is in charge of Beardivism” he responds “Even you, child, hold the power of Beardivism. To some, power is a zero sum game. They believe that becoming more powerful implies reducing the power of others. To the Beardivist, true power is a capacity to motivate, to influence without diminishing the influenced. Mankind is just like so many whiskers. Be the styling wax, child, not the shears.” If the child objects, persuade it.
