Question: Fifth rule: Each member of the group should try to “buy friends.” This is an ancient principle that sages of all generations have written about a lot.
How should one buy a friend? Your attention, concessions, cancellation of personal interests? Or are there some other principles?
Answer: However you can buy him, buy him. Gifts, words, actions. Anything.
Question: That is, it is a tool. And the result? What will it give me?
Answer: You attract him to you. After all, a friend is someone who can support you, agree with you. Even based on purely selfish interests.
Question: Meaning, by my attention I buy him and thereby buy his support?
