True dat. Some human beings be bad. Always have and always will.

One hopes in modern and future times that aggression could be channeled into mundane, beneficial (and lucrative) societal behavior. But somehow, I doubt it. There are some that just want to be the boss of you and take your head off if you object.

Every generation, it seems, deludes itself into thinking that war and barbarism have become outdated.  It always turns out that the fundamental rules that have governed civilization are immutable.  War may well be a reality of human nature.  Any civilization that thinks it is immune from war is simply delusional and will not remain a civilization for long.
