DAN, which means to judge, represents the channel of law and order. Objective justice sits at the crux of any civilization. Society and individualism without structure or bounds can lead to lawlessness, extreme selfishness, and anarchy. Dan, like "the snake that sits upon the side of the road, a viper along the path, to bite the horse’s heel so that its rider tumbles backward," has the ability to create checks and balances, and mete out justice, where necessary. May carrying the DAN help guide your good judgement and awaken your desire and wherewithal to build a more just and equal society for all.
