Injury begets retribution

As gifts incur reciprocation so do injuries. 
Injury begets retribution. The society that fails to appreciate the specialness of gifts is also the society that will remain passive before an injury. 
Gifting is a substitute for fighting. The initiation of a gift is a challenge to the other party either to reciprocate the gift or to suffer the dead weight loss of offense and counter-offense.
