This is an old one. The essential nature of the choice itself is eternal and everlasting, but the expression of it takes its shape from the culture within which it resurrects itself, again and again. The choice is always the same. It is the same for Russian and American, Bosnian and Serb, Muslim and Christian or Black and White.
My favorite way to express this choice comes from the 1960s Vietnam War era, and the choice is this:
Shit or go blind.
The personal choice you make on this fundamental existential issue tells us who you are.
